Impact of Electronic Commerce in Eastern Countries


Each CEEC (Central and Eastern European Countries) and NIS (New Independent States of the former Soviet Union) country has its own initiatives, projects, actions and eventually a policy in the E-Commerce domain.

A workshop will be held to explain to EU industrialists, associations and other European organisations, what is going in 5 of those countries

E-Commerce and the 5th Framework programme should create a new space of mutually beneficial co-operation between the EU and all CEEC and NIS countries

Other indirect aspects will be explained like electronic payments, or CEEC IPR issues and impacts of city reorganisation due to electronic trade.

Common initiatives are expected to emerge during and after the sessions and opportunities will be addressed for submission in the future calls for proposals.

Tuesday 23 November 13:15-16:30 room C3
