Globalisation and new collaborative working environments, 2006/S 100-106617, Contract notice

Funded under: FP6-IST


This study will focus on how globalisation affects the way companies are operating and how they can respond to it in a beneficial way by establishing new collaborative working environments driven by strong technological integration, uptake and usage of ICT, thereby extending European business possibilities even for very small companies.
The focus is on opportunities in the global knowledge-based service economy, e.g. how European companies can reap wide positive competitive benefits by having a strong human-centric ICT technology uptake and wide usage which can drive their business forward and lead to more innovation, productive and better high skilled jobs in Europe.
Global trade integration has progressed quickly in international outsourcing of research and innovation activities; witness the off-shoring of ICT-intensive work due to overpricing of scarce skills in Europe; and this situation has to be reversed.
