ESICEE Editor Avatar

Bilbao, Spain will host the Week@ESI (2 – 6 of June) – an IT networking forum and a meeting point for all players involved in IT competitiveness around the world. It will provide participants with plenty of opportunities to meet other players, to debate common issues, exchange expertise, find new business chances and perhaps see their efforts rewarded with an award. 

The Week@ESI begins (2-3 of June) with the Annual ESI@net Event – the ESI commercial network in charge of promoting and delivering ESI products and services to the world-wide market. 

It is followed by the Second International Clustering Congress at Zamudio (Bizkaia) – 4th to 6th June. Some of the topics to be raised and discussed are: Different agents, different expectations; What SMEs really get out of a cluster approach project; Practical measures to ensure successful cluster approach project management; Defining an effective IT competitiveness strategy; Where do I start if I think my region needs a Cluster Approach Project?; How to keep SMEs on board throughout the project?

Next event at the Week@ESI is the Second Edition ESI Awards for Software Excellence, scheduled for 5th of June. These awards recognize efforts made by companies in Software Process Improvement, with a visible commitment to continuous improvement.

On the 6th of June the Week@ESI will be finished with the first Round Table on the Internationalization of R&D: challenges and benefits of international collaborative research projects, which will be held at ESI in Zamudio, Bizkaia. This Round Table aims to create a space for ideas exchange between all agents involved in R&D. Conclusions will be sent to the III FP7 Conference in Spain in early 2009. Its topics include Measuring benefits of international R&D, Amplifying the benefits of international R&D, Challenges of international R&D.
