ECOLEAD – European Collaborative networked Organisations LEADership initiative
ECOLEAD is an “Integrated Project” co-funded by the European Commission within 6th Framework Programme (2002-2006). Commencing in April 2004, ECOLEAD is a 4-year project involving 20 partners from 14 countries across Europe.
Collaborative networks of organizations provide a basis for competitiveness, world-excellence, and agility in turbulent market conditions. They can support SMEs to identify and exploit new business potential, boost innovation, and increase their knowledge. Networking of SMEs with large-scale enterprises also contributes to the success of the big companies in the global market. Reinforcing the effectiveness of collaborative networks, mostly based on SMEs, and creating the necessary conditions for making them endogenous reality in the European industrial landscape, are key survival factors.
DURATION: 1 April 2004 – 30 June 2008
