The workshop aims at strengthening the scientific and technological cooperation and collaboration among the European Union countries in field of IT applications and services for the mobile users and workers, open development platforms for software and services, e-learning, e-logistics, e-Inclusion and cross-media content for leisure and entertainment.
The workshop will assist the EU in becoming "the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world", by making the best use of available public funding and especially EU IST funding. The development of the Knowledge Society in all EU Member States is a top priority in creating higher growth, more and better jobs and greater social inclusion. The EU Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (RTD) provide important tools to address this challenge.
Workshop is held as a part of Baltic IT&T Forum and International Exhibition 2006.
