Cross-border eRegion

Cross-border eRegion development is very relevant in timely. It is about e-collaboration of the neighbouring cross-border regions and countries exploiting the information and communication technology - ICT. In that regard, a human-centric open innovation, a major component of the Living Labs movement, may be a very powerful support agent. Since the Finnish Presidency of the European Council during the second half of 2006, the messages of The Helsinki Manifesto (We have to move fast before it is too late, 20.11.2006) have created numerous activities of a very well echoed European Network of Living Labs – ENoLL.

Organizations are invited to consider opportunities of involvement in the cross-border region's development by an accelerated ICT usage. This may be very important with respect to the opportunities enabled by the future of Internet. An experimental (prototyping, living labbing, piloting) approach imbedded in the Living Labs methodology could be recommended. The universities and universities' networks may be encouraged to support innovative ways of the cross-border e-collaboration in Central Europe, Southeast Europe, or Danube cross-border eRegion. For example, ALADIN – ALpe ADria INitiative Universities’ Network.
