All of the information generated by EEMA and its members is available to other members free of charge.

Planning is now underway for our annual conference, Digital Enterprise Europe 11-12 June, Amsterdam, our Regional Interest Group meetings and of course ISSE 2013 which takes place in Brussels (22-23 October). These events give attendees the opportunity to keep up-to-date with information about the state of the industry and to network with like minded people. EEMA members attend Interest Group meetings free and at a much reduced fee for the conferences.
EEMA and its members are also involved in many European funded projects including STORK2, SSEDIC and TDL (Trust in Digital Life).
