DeRC 2014 Outline
The cross-border eLogistics, eProcurement, eGovernment, eLearning, eTourism & eCulture, eHealth, eSMEs, and other eAreas are vital and relevant to the eConnectivity of the EU macro regions. For example, the Adriatic-Ionic, Alpine, or Danube eRegion. From a bigger picture perspective, the eTechnologies will allow for the interoperability of the regions on the eAmber and eSilk Roads.
In Slovenia, the Inter-Municipality Initiative: Cross-border eCollaboration in the Danube eRegion has been under way since February 2011.
Prototype presentations are in a line with the Living Labs and the Open Innovation concept and methodology. The LLs promote user-driven methods and tools for improving the real-world development of products and services. A special focus is at the cross-border eSolutions and eServices. The descriptions of the prototype proposals presented previously are published at: http://elivinglab.org/CrossBordereRegion/DeRC2013/Prototypes.htm and
Organizations are invited to submit a prototype proposal involving the organization in at least three countries. Alternatively, they may like to join one of the existing prototype groups. A prototype submission form is available on the conference’s website. Suggestions on possible collaborative joint cross-border actions are appreciated.
There is no conference fee. Registration is required, however. A conference participant covers her/his travel and accommodation costs.
