General Info: Each partner received an access to partner platform moodle.

3) e-commerce solutions (see presentation on moodle). The existing software is mostly for goods and not services as foreseen for Bazaar. The software is to modify for the demands of the project:

-For example a surface like Monique presented; a virtual bazaar with shops to click on

And another very interesting from Canada:

Or from US :

-suggestions for the domain name: or,

-each country a separate bazaar (due to the local services and languages) but some branches like tourisms or goods can be offered at eu-bazaar for all costumers.

-A logo for bazaar (suggestions of partners)

- Mr. Czekalla will develop a template (Questionnaire) in order to constitute the design and technique of  the bazaar webshop in accordance of needs and capacities of partners and their target groups.

4) e-commerce course of EBG (on moodle)

The course must be modified in accordance to the needs and lCT levels of the target groups in each country. Each partner decides which parts are likely to overtake and/or shorten for a course.

5) Next partner meeting and disseminations workshop will take place in Paris. 13.4. arrival, joining the show Emploi des seniors”  , 14.4. Bazaar external workshop, 15.4. partner meeting until noon 16.4. (1,5 days), afternoon departure (official end of Bazaar project activity)

The show called “Emploi des seniors” (  is  about “seniors and jobs/work opportunities.  During the show there will be several conferences and we will organize one of them. In our conference cycle,  both the partners from the ECom45+ Grundtvig learning partnership and  the partners of  the E-Bazaar  multilateral project are going to make presentations.

For the first group the subjects will be around :

- the state of the art of seniors employment in several European countries

- the local governmental solutions to seniors unemployment

For  the e-Bazaar group, the idea will be to present the project as an example of social economy and solidarity and  a  solution for those who want to try some entrepreneurial adventure for selling services or products  but also , for each partner to speak about the provisional local partners, who are likely to be the future entrepreneurs in partner countries and a first analysis of what services or goods they might offer.
