About Digital Business Ecosystems

The DE aims to provide SMEs with ICT infrastructure and technology to improve their efficiency and integration into global value chains. It is a systemic approach to support global collaboration activities by firms based on open-source and a distributed environment of networked services. The DE offers and transports services (applications) and information (knowledge), through adaptive technologies and evolutionary business models that empower business networks and support local and regional development.

The results of EU research in this area support enterprises, and specifically demonstrate how SMEs and independent developers and producers could be included in economic processes, through a Digital Business Ecosystem paradigm. In recent years, this approach is emerging worldwide and seems to be able to answer some of the main challenges.
