[school-discuss] THREE ROSES - Three Regional Operating networks working on StrategicElectronic Scenarios

"This IST funded project will evaluate the current situation with regard to the development and adoption of Open Source Software (OSS) solutions to modernise public administration at local and regional level, and to support the economic development of the territory. Three Roses focuses on e-government services and e-business solutions that could be promoted by public administrations in their local context. Special attention will also be paid to the development of e-tools to support and enhance a learning process around open source solutions for the public sector. The benefits and disadvantages of adopting OSS technology are also being examined.

The objective of the project is to develop a relevant roadmap for future research work under the 6th Framework Programme of Research and Technological Development of the European Commission. This will be done by concentrating on the state of the art of research and the use of Open Source Software in e government and related e-business and learning processes.

To achieve this objective, Three Roses will become an open platform in which participants in potential future research work will be able to debate and exchange views during two workshop sessions and through a virtual forum. The life span of the project is one year (2003). Consultation will involve OSS researchers and developers, local/regional users and stakeholders, as well as experts in managing large European projects."
