CORDIS RTD-NEWS/c European Communities, 1999.
Record Control Number: 12879
As telework continues to become a normal working
practice, the physical places that people work
from are becoming less localized. To address the
impact this "de-localization" of working practices
has on lifestyle and culture, the European
Commission's Directorate General XIII is
organizing a European Telework Information Day on
1 June 1999 in Brussels.
The event will provide a forum for telework
professionals to discuss the possible impacts of
telework becoming a mainstream practice. The
information day will provide an opportunity to be
updated on the European Commission's policy,
information and stimulation activities with regard
to telework and to preview the European Telework
Status report for 1999. Additionally, this is the
official public launch of the European Telework
week 1999 and the call for nominations for the
1999 Telework Awards.
Because the deadline for the first calls for
proposals under the European Commission's Fifth
RTD Framework Programme is only two weeks after
this event, there will be a last-minute platform
for short announcements and calls for partners.
The Commission requests that those interested
should send short comments beforehand to:
These comments will be included in a paper to be
handed out to all participants at the information
The organizers are also inviting those planning
initiatives for European Telework Week (from 1 to
7 November1999) to send a short outline of their
projects for inclusion in an overview of
forthcoming events, which will be handed out at
the information day. The short outline should be
