Brussels, 24 January 2006
The e-Business [email protected] study team presented the new work-programme to industry representatives of the 10 sectors studied in 2006, and to officials from the corresponding units of DG Enterprise and Industry and other Directorates.
Disucssion focused on the main topics which were proposed for study in the forthcoming e-Business Sector Reports. Industry made comments and offered recommendations regarding important aspects to be considered in sector studies. All participants confirmed their willingness to actively cooperate with the study team, for example by facilitating access to companies, or by pointing at interesting case studies in their sectors.
The workshop consisted of a morning and an afternoon session, with 5 sectors being presented and discussed in each session. Both sessions started with short introductory presentations by George Karageorgos, the e-Business [email protected]Project Officer at DG Enterprise and Industry, and Hannes Selhofer, project manager at empirica GmbH. Following this introduction, members of the study team outlined the approach for sector studies (sector definition, main topics). These study profiles were then discussed with participants.
