Principles of ePrototype Development

The prototyping (proof of concept) and open innovation are methodological components of the initiative.

Usage of the eSolution is simple.

The eSolution is in accordance with a need and a desire of its user.

In the eSolution the required manual procedures are imbedded into the software allowing for the solution to be easily arranged by the user to fit with her/his current requirements.

The paper documents are replaced by the e-messages.

The organization is enabling the partnering organization an insight into data related to the common buying-selling process.

Data provided by the organization can be used in the partnering organization without any additional manual data entry.

Data standards and norms are accessible, unified and useful to all partnering organizations.

Prototype development groups cooperate and share the experience gained.

Prototype eSolutions are presented to the professional public.

The eRegion Portal is exploited for a better eCollaboration.

The Food eSupply & eProcurement prototypes are closely related to some other areas of the  Inter-Municipality Initiative: Cross-border eCollaboration in the eRegions. For example, SMEs eCommerce in the eRegions  & eMunicipalities Without Borders.

Načela razvijanja prototipne e-rešitve

Prototipiranje in odprto inoviranje sta metodološki sestavini pobude.

Uporaba e-rešitve je enostavna.

Prototipna e-rešitev je taka, kakršno rabi in si jo želi njen uporabnik.

V e-rešitvi so ročni postopki vgrajeni v program, ki uporabniku omogoča, da ga po svoji presoji prilagaja trenutnim zahtevam.

Papirne listine so nadomeščene z e-sporočili.

Organizacija omogoča partnerski organizaciji vpogled v podatke, ki so povezani s skupnim nakupno-prodajnim procesom.

Podatki so iz ene organizacije posredovani drugi organizaciji na način, da ponovno ročno zajemanje teh podatkov ni potrebno.

Standardi in normativi so dostopni, poenoteni in uporabni v vseh sodelujočih organizacijah.

Skupine, ki izdelujejo prototipe, sodelujejo in izmenjujejo pridobljene izkušnje.

Prototipne e-rešitve so predstavljene strokovni javnosti.

eRegion portal  se izrablja za boljše e-sodelovanje.

Food eSupply & eProcurement Interoperability Workshop on March 14, 2017

The Food eSupply & eProcurement prototypes will be presented and discussed at a workshop which will be taking place in the University Medical Centre Ljubljana on Tuesday, March 14, 2017. The workshop will be problem based and action focused. The representatives of the organizations in at least three countries should be involved. The objectives of the workshop could be several:

– Initiation of an action needed and doable in the next 12 months.
– Preparation of a panel of the 2017 eRegions Conference.
– Preparation of a prototype proposal (regions-con-2017-crossborder-prototype-form).
– Draft development of a joint project proposal as a response to one of the EU calls for projects.

Envisioned are the following panels focusing at the eSupply and eProcurement interoperability:

  • Platforms (Ministries of Agriculture and Food & Associations/Chambers)
  • Food Suppliers (farmers, cooperatives)
  • Food Buyers (hospitals, schools, kindergartens)
  • eMunicipalities (municipality mayors)

There is no workshop fee. Registration is required, however. A workshop participant covers her/his travel and accommodation costs.

Meeting's Conclusions

Each food seller (agricultural cooperative, dairy) and each food buyer (hospital) will directly invite the partners of interest to engage in a prototype development in the period December 2016 – February 2017. The prototype is expected to be a small and simple Internet based joint e-solution (proof of concept) interested to the seller as well as to the buyer.

The meeting’s participant will inform the mayor of the respective municipality about the activities of the  Inter-Municipality Initiative: Cross-border eCollaboration in the eRegions and propose her/him to join the initiative. A current list of the municipality representatives is published at http://eregion.eu/initiative/members/town-municipalities and http://eregion.eu/initiative/members/neighboring-municipalities.

Based on the invitation of Mr Milan Čadež, Mayor, Municipality of Gorenja vas – Poljane the next group meeting will be in Gorenja vas in early February 2017. Date to be defined.

The meeting’s participant will consider the organizations in the neighboring countries to be invited to the workshop in March 2017 (Austria, Croatia, Italy, Hungary).
