The e-Thematic project will be steered and monitored by a Steering Committee. Steering Committee meetings will include representatives from Member States, research representatives from both national and European RTD-projects, representatives from the industry (users and service providers) and other international organisations. The Steering Committee will meet once a year.
Throughout the year, members of the Steering Committee, the Working Groups and the RTD-projects will be invited to participate in electronic conferences, e-mail exchanges, etc. in order to establish a continuous information exchange and strong lines of contact. A State of the Art report of the EU and USA e-fulfilment markets will be made determining applications used and emerging technologies. It will include best practices and will be used as an input for the steering committee. This website will also be used as a central element in a continuous communication process.
