AMI@Work Family of ERA Communities

May 26, 2004
The New Working Environments unit of the European Commission's information Society Directorate-General fosters Information Society Technologies (IST) research to catalyse systemic innovation, in order to enable high-quality and productive person-centric and collaborative new working environments in Europe. To achieve this aim it is necessary to link European 'dream team' communities of research and deployment in a cross disciplinary manner.

The AMI@Work family of self-organising ERA communities links people in all 25 EU Member States and beyond for a European Research and Innovation Area (ERA) at work. This family facilitates new working environments innovation, ERA-wide and in EU 6th and 7th Framework Programmes of research (FP6 and FP7). This family consists of self-organising communities, to be facilitated by elected leaders, in collaboration with EU projects MOSAIC and SEEMseed, and the New Working Environments unit of the Information Society Directorate-General of the European Commission, together with related Commission services. These communities represent potential cross-fertilising technology themes and challenging validation environments with a significant technological, economic and societal impact. The AMI@Work family of ERA communities itself is a real-life collaboration experiment. 'Practice what we preach'. These communities are based on web-based membership registration by interested individuals.
