The conference aims to bring together international researchers interested in the analysis, design and evaluation of cooperative systems, their integration in organizational, community, public and other settings, and their implications for policy and decision-making.
Andreas Larsson’s paper, co-authored by FPD colleagues Åsa Ericson and Tobias Larsson and Dave Randall from Manchester Metropolitan University, presented an exploration of how Web 2.0 technologies might impact the knowledge sharing practices of Virtual Enterprises. Specifically, the authors make the point that a move towards developing ‘functions’ rather than ‘hardware’ poses new and challenging demands for such enterprises, and why ‘lightweight technology’ might be exceptionally well suited to adress these challenges.
