eBRC’s main object is to increase e-business related research and eBRC attempts to do this by being a matchmaker of stakeholder interests. eBRC’s researcher resources are the researchers in its founder universities and eBRC acts as a coordinating function between all the parties in a project.
The idea for a project can come from researchers, businesses or financers and eBRC offers its expertise in searching the right partners, checking out possibilities for funding and coordinating the project. eBRC can also grant kick-off funding for highly prospective research projects.
Beside these services eBRC has a web service, where its partners can discuss e-business topics and get current e-business related information. eBRC brings its stakeholders together in many events, for example in its annual eBRF (e-Business Research Forum),where the latest research is presented. Current academic e-business research is also available in the web service, where publications "Frontiers of e-Business Research" (the conference proceedings) and "Research Reports" (RR) -series are published.
