the “Mental Change” Citizen –3 proposal for “e.Govern and e.entrepreneurchip innovation" would like to be developed as a sum of some National or Regional Working Plans where the components of each national/regional sub-project can belong to the similar composition integrating the followingcomponents :

a) Governmental Entities

d) Mass Media and ITC firms for a large dissemination of the project proposal and results

I think the project will be an effective an opportunity to develop a Knowledge Management innovation Trans-European Consortium based on a bench marking and best practices strategy for improving MENTAL CHANGE in e.Govern oin some national or Regional Districts for a large extension of sharing e.govern innovative knowledge in the context of an Extended European Community .

Finally the main goal the project will be to understand the deep needs Of “MENTAL CHANGE” and to propose the strategies of development new entrepreneurship appropriated for growing up Extended Networking Enterprises connecting in a business-networks, University- SME's, Industries and Governmental Institutions , in a way that will be more easy to improve the KNOWLEDGE ECONOMY in an Extended Europe context.
