Do you have a problem?

Do you have a problem in an inter-organizational setting? Do you see a problem in cross-border collaboration? Think of the opportunities offered by the eSolutions and eServices. Engage in a cross-border eCollaboration prototype development.

P r o t o t y p e    P r o p o s a l

A prototype is an early sample or model built to test a concept, or process, or to act as a thing to be replicated or learned from. It may be considered a proof of concept. A prototype is a possible basis of a pilot development. A basis of a prototype development is a problem for which the stakeholders (problem owners) have interest in solving it.

Published are examples of the prototype proposals which have been presented at various cross-border events in recent years.

Attached to this page is a Cross-border Prototype Proposal Form.
