On the way towards the information society all of us are challenged: large companies as well as small and medium ones, public authorities, private households and all other institutions and organisations.
One strategy to utilise the potentials of the information age and their enabling technologies is to establish regional electronic marketplaces. The establishment of electronic marketplaces with a regional focus and a simultaneous vision of a 'global village' is not contradictory but complementary (Zimmermann 1997). The Electronic Mall Bodensee (EMB) is a regional, but multi-national project that realises an electronic marketplace for a specific region in the heart of Europe. It covers parts of Austria, Germany and Switzerland.
