About the Event 

From the geographical point of view, it is the eRegion that we can understand as being a totality of organizations – linked by eTechnologies – of nearby countries in a circle of 200 to 500 kilometers surrounding the observation point. The eRegion development can offer a tangible example of eCollaboration of organizations in the countries situated in a certain geographical area. The eRegion development is aiming at increasing the competitiveness of each of the participating countries and the eRegion as a whole. The eRegions development may contribute to the Lisbon Strategy of the EU.

The undergraduate and graduate students will present the results of diplomas illustrated by the prototype solutions in the “e” area. Two emerging topics, requiring an executive level attention of business, government and universities will be discussed in the panels: the Cross-border eInvoicing & eProcurement in the eRegion, and the Cross-border eCollaboration in a disaster relief in the eRegion. Possible areas of the joint cross-border projects and actions will be suggested.

English is the working language of the event.
