The Global workspace, The impact of the New Working Environments: tacit made explicit (e-Locus cluster), IST-2001-38790

Project ID: IST-2001-38790
Funded under: FP5-IST


E-locus aims to cluster IST projects working in the area of workspace design, respecting the objectives of each specific type of project and action line and facilitating synergy between them. From a larger integration of the individual point of view, it intends to interchange information and forge links between R&D teams working already in the workspace design field all around Europe.
Taking the person as a whole, the person integrated at workplace and how to improve that integration incorporating innovative technologies to the process as the start point, research areas such as workplace design, organisational internal communication, organisational knowledge management, emotional intelligence and team work management will be explored, thus conforming a holistic view of the integration of the person at workplace.
The present report attempts to describe the context of what is known as “New Working Environments” and to show that it is not longer just an abstract concept, but a material reality, made of new relationships within a global space constituted by the office/factory/market, a continuous whole without boundaries.
