The founding members created the network Interdisciplinary eCollaboration Think Tank on Silvester, December 31, 2020. The purpose of this network is to promote learning from others/ sharing our ideas with others in regard to problems identified and solutions possible.

The members are actively involved in several actions in their respective environments, where they are learning that various disciplines have to collaborate more closely by exploiting eTechnologies. In numerous areas, for example, climate change, aging society, pandemic, healthy food procurement, human rights and defence of democracy, and related domains, an accelerated usage of the Internet is needed within all disciplines, and between the disciplines – eDisciplines. In particular, with the overwhelming penetration of artificial intelligence, big data and robotics, it is necessary to question how these technologies may interact with human compassion and empathy, stimulating the role of social sciences and humanities in conjunction with ICT.

Information Systems and Information Technology professionals have an important role to play in helping bridge disciplines to enable efficient and effective collaboration in addition to highlighting technology application opportunities, threats, and benefits.

The idea of this network in based on decades of experience in business (eCommerce, eBusiness, eLogistics, eTraffic, eBanking, eMedia), in government (eGovernment, eDemocracy, eMunicipality, eJustice, ePolice, eHealth, eCulture), and education (eLearning, eEducation).

The emerging new areas require interdisciplinary approach. For example, eScience, eMedicine, Active Aging eInclusion, Seniors eSupport, eNursing, and others. The graduate and PhD students can contribute a lot to those areas.

Critical narrative and media analysis as well as digital storytelling skills bring into focus the importance of intergenerational dialogue and of lifelong learning to combat generational tension in times of specific challenges, such as climate change and the pandemic, and gives a voice to all generations.

The network is open to linking with similar think tanks and networks. For questions about joining this network please contact
