Abstract

The Bled eConference quite often gets connected to the notion of eRegion. Therefore in this paper we will have a closer look at how the idea of an eRegion has been addressed by the conference over the past. After briefly looking at the emergence of the term eRegion, we summarize the contribution of the Bled eConference to the field of eRegion in the Research Track as well as in the Business Track. Whereas in the Research Track contributions have focused mostly on developing existing regions through ICT means, the Business Track activities tackle especially cross-border challenges between regions.

Keywords: eRegion, regional development
