There will be a public lecture about it in London on February 6th, 2004, at the Henry Thomas Room, London Metropolitan University. Watch this space for futher details.
CANADIAN EMERGENCEThe EMERGENCE project continues to generate offspring. EMERGENCE Canada was launched with a highly successful workshop in Vancouver in September 2003.
Further details of the project can be found on http://www.chs.ubc.ca/emergence/ The team are looking for interesting case studies of eWork relocation to or from Canada, especially in Asia. So if you happen to know of any, please contact us
OTHER EMERGENCE NEWSAsian EMERGENCE is drawing to a close. Fifty case studies have now been completed and are currently being analysed. Watch this space for details of publications.
We are also hoping to put together a project in Latin America, following strong interest from partners in Columbia, Chile, Argentina, Mexico, Uruguay and Brazil. However we are currently having trouble identifying suitable sources of funding. If you know of any, please contact us
A reminder that 450 or so pages of the main EMERGENCE website are now online at http://www.emergence.nu including conference papers, downloadable reports, the eReadiness database and the Regional Development Toolkit
The RESPECT project has now produced a draft code of conduct for
social and economic research. We are trying to distribute this as
widely as possible for consultation before finalising it early next year
with the aim of getting it formally adopted by the European Commission and
as many professional associations and research institutes as possible.
The code can be found on http://www.respectproject.org/code
and there is an online form for providing feedback. If you want
hard copies to distribute, you can obtain them from the Institute for Employment
Studies, Mantell Building, Falmer, Brighton, BN1 9RF, UK or emailing email@example.com
A number of background discussion documents, links etc. can also
be found on http://www.respectproject.org
The STILE project, led by HIVA in Belgium, continues its work on
statistical indicators of eWork and the eEconomy. It has just produced
a useful newsletter with model questions on teleworking to be piggybacked
on population surveys. This can be found on http://www.stile.be/Newsletters/Newsletter_no_4.pdf
The project has also produced a 'digital toolkit' of questions used
in employer surveys to elicit information about the use of new technologies.
This can be searched on http://www.stile.be/toolkit/toolkit.htm
Further information about STILE can be found on http://www.stile.be
A reminder that you can still order copies of this book of short stories published by Analytica from www.minorcruelties.com There's a gift-wrapping service and we can send to any address, so it's a good and painless way to send a birthday present. So far we have had nothing but positive feedback from readers.
