Abstract

Authors of this paper have been founders of the EuroSPI (1994 – now, www.eurospi.net ) network with the first networking of SPI strategies published at CON’93 conference. They were also founders of the idea and establishment of a Europe wide certification network ECQA ( www.ecqa.org ) in 2005 (strategy development 2005 – 2007, online systems set up 2008 – 2009, Europe wide roll out since 2009). In a think tank and network of leading SPI experts we have developed the idea of a future European knowledge networking strategy and how the existing SPI paradigms will shift into a new SPI world applying new principles for collaboration, networking, and using new media which became available in the last 3-4 years.This vision will then impact about how we collaborate and implement SPI in the future.
