> Hi all,
> I am glad to inform you that the group of university teachers and  
> IT scholars
> is forging ahead with establishing an international non-profit  
> association
> aimed at fostering proper use of information technologies in  
> education and
> academic research, especially focusing on open access and open  
> content.
> While mid-term projects will be publishing a monthly newsletter and  
> organizing
> an annual conference (as you can read in the statute), our first  
> immediate
> objective is to foster 'open communities' of teachers and  
> researchers forging
> their own digital tools and to provide them the opportunity to meet  
> and grow.
> It is up to us to establish the exec committee duties, at this  
> stage, to
> pursue those objectives.
> Our first task will be just to discuss how the association could be
> instrumental in bringing such 'open content' communities to light.
> Maintaining connections with educational and research institutions and
> international institutions will probably be among our committments.
> I would appreciate your suggestions about people who could  
> contribute in some way
> to set up and lead the association projects and available to be  
> part of the
> Executive Committee.
> Here you can find the statutes draft: http://www.eexplor.org/
> Your comments and help are very welcome
> Thank you
