published on Thursday, September 5th 2013

September 5th, 2013 the 3rd ERCIS Virtual Seminar was introduced to students at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) located in Ulsan, Republic of Korea. The Seminar is organized by the ERCIS Headquarters at the University of Münster and its partner institution - the University of Liechtenstein.

The idea of the seminar stems from discussions of ERCIS members during several conferences and workshops, which have revealed the demand for a broader perspective on BPM (Business Process Management) education and consideration of such aspects as strategy, governance, culture, and people. This perspective is included in the ERCIS Seminars and the students are offered to participate in a real life international project. The Seminar’s tasks include ad-hoc group building and its outcomes might lead to scientific publications. The participating students are divided into groups, where, in the best case, each student comes from a different university. None of the team members should know each other in advance. The students’ tasks are to set means of virtual collaboration with each other and to jointly work on an announced topic. The students have to write a seminar paper or a report and to present the results during mid-term and final presentations. Moreover, students have to regularly report on their virtual collaboration experiences by filling the provided Agility Portfolios.

Collaboration with UNIST and its inclusion into the ERCIS network became possible within the Networked Service Society (NSS) project. The Graduate School of Technology Management (GSTM) at UNIST is the most recent partner in the ERCIS network (
