  1. WP2 - VBE VO BREEDING ENVIRONMENT Introductory Training Program For New Network Partners Hamideh Afsarmanesh University of Amsterdam Brussels – May 23-24, 2006

  2. DYNAMICCREATION OF VOs VO Many Challenges! Opportunity “Open universe of organizations”

  3. Open Universe! MANY CHALLENGES . . . Agree on rights & sharing benefits/losses Define roles and responsibilities of partners Agree on common principles of sharing/working Build trust as the base for organization collaboration Establish commoninteroperability/integration platform Compare and select organizations to configure the VO Resolve semantic heterogeneity in organizations information Acquire basic profile/competency information of organizations Deal with incompatibility and heterogeneity of information sources Dynamically Configure a new VO from autonomous/heterogeneous organizations Know about Existence/Abilitiesof potential partners in open universe OPPORTUNITY

  4. VOs AND VBEs Fluid creation of VOs VO VBE VO Configuration Opportunity Controlled Border Universe Open Universe

  5. VBE – VIRTUAL ORGANIZATION BREEDING ENVIRONMENT An association or alliance of organizations and their related supporting institutions, that adhere to a base long term cooperation agreement, and adoption of common operating principles and infrastructures, with the main goal of increasing both their chances and their preparedness towards collaboration in potential future Virtual Organizations (VOs) • Very long termstrategic alliances • to facilitate brokerage of dynamic • VOs - matching opportunities against • the collection of existing • competencies • Industry Districts • Industry Clusters • SME Networks • …

  6. FULL FLEDGE EU-wide VBEs IN ACTION ECOLEAD WP2’s Aim - Excel and reach innovation necessary for Fluid Creation of VOs - Define related concepts, reference models and methodologies - Develop mechanisms, prototypes, and proof of concepts To be achieved afterwards … • - National / International laws • - Heavy public sponsorship • - Productization of ECOLEAD R&D results • Global trust & acceptance • …

  15. ELEMENTS OF VBE REFERENCE FRAMEWORK How to build the Whole greater than the sum of its Parts! • How to “reform the role of breeding environments”? - In a VBE, What to do and when, to support the fluid creation of VOs? Empower, Boost, and Replicate • Identification/specification of needed methodologies & mechanisms for VBEs • - Next step: Selection of Primary (hot) issues to develop in ECOLEAD

  16. 3-DIMENSIONS VBE FUNCTIONAL FRAMEWORK Extend support for new discovered potentials - Proactive discovery of opportunities - Creation of new opportunities - Discovery of emerging new competencies - bag of assets - Support institution facilitation - Accreditation (sector quality, activity costs, business processes) - System of incentives Identify infrastructure andmechanisms for replication - Methodologies for opportunity discovery and creation - Defining accreditation strategy - Competence ontology extraction and evolution - Value systems (regulation & guidelines generation) - Dynamic trust management (based and identified criteria) - Business model development 2.Boost 3.Replicate 1.Empower Address already identified needs - ICT base infrastructure - Competence management - Trust management - Performance management - History inheritance
