AMI@work - COMmunities stimulating participation of NMS and ACC organisations in eWork and eBusiness related IST activities

Objective

COMIST increases participation of NMAS organisations in IST activities in eWork according to a systemic innovation approach. COMIST implements a general collaboration and interaction environment through the instrument of virtual or networked communities already experimented with success within the AMI@Work Communities initiative launched in June '04 by the European Commission with the support of the MOSAIC and SEEMseed projects. More than 600 participants from over 20 European countries have already registered to this initiative since March '04. COMIST focus is on strengthening the NMAS innovation system in the area of eWork and eBusiness and building strong integrative networking relations with IST.

The COMIST working method is based on the MOSAIC project in launching the AMI@Work family of communities. COMIST success is based on four main activities: aligning the role of NMAS organisations in Innovation Networks based on a systemic innovation approach, building a Network of Communities acting as "breeding ground" for innovation and collaboration, organising events and communication channels for promoting the involvement of NMAS organisations, as well as establishing a collaboration-building infrastructure to facilitate partnering. COMIST results in a faster and wider collaboration among NMAS organisations and other Member States organisations increasing the potential of collaborative innovation and discovering business opportunities in the enlarged EU.

COMIST facilitates access to EU research communities, appropriate partners and opportunities of participation to research projects for NMAS organisations, especially for SMEs. COMIST has brought together a core team of partners, from both NMAS and other Member States, with strong track record in community building, eWork and eBusiness RTD. Partners have coordinated roadmap projects and network activities under FP5 and FP6, like COCONET, Future Workspaces, ROADCON, CE-NET, VOSTER, VE-FORUM, SEEMseed and MOSAIC.
