Digital Ecosystems-Learning Application Network (DE-LAN)
Working in partnership
The project has 9 European partners and is led by the Welsh Government. It has been created to address a recognised need amongst businesses to become more innovative and exploit the potential of new and emerging digital technologies.
Businesses also understand that they should work with others if they are to strengthen their position in the global economy. To achieve this, they need support. Government has a role to play in encouraging this change however, this has yet to be defined.
How will DE-LAN help?
Over 3 years DE-LAN will establish the practical implications of creating new types of digital business networks or Digital Ecosystems. A Digital Ecosystem (DE) can be used to create a collaborative online environment to digitally connect organisations, companies and individuals that trade together.
By sharing experiences and examples from across nine European regions, analysing successes and failures, best practice will be identified in the deployment of digital collaboration networks. This will be widely communicated to help change the way governments and businesses think and act.
Businesses across Europe will be given practical steps and tools to enable them to work together more effectively using new digital technologies. Governments will know how to create an environment to enable sustainable digital business networks. These businesses will be better placed to compete in today's dynamic, global markets, thereby creating wealth and increasing the number of skilled jobs in the regions.
More information about the project is available from the DE-LAN website. (External link)
