Part of the IFIP – The International Federation for Information Processing book series (IFIPAICT, volume 283)

Sustainability exemplifies the new problem field for managers and project leaders in an emergent network-based organizational world where corporations must maintain consistency of purposes and yet be flexible enough to interact and compete in conditions of constant change and flux. The first part of the paper covers the theoretical framework of sustainability of collaborative networks as the simultaneous effort of balancing economic, social and intellectual development goals. The second part comprises the comparative analysis of 181 FP6 projects and the last part presents discussion on ways to increase sustainability.
