Introduction  ©Romero, 2008  ECOLEAD Basic Concepts on Collaborative Networks • Virtual Breeding Environments (VBEs) are long-term strategic alliances of organisations aimed at offering the necessary conditions (e.g. human, financial, social, infrastructural & organisational)to support the rapid and fluid configuration of Virtual Organisations (VOs).•VBEs mainly focus on creating an adequate environment for the establishment of:  –  cooperation agreements,  –  common operation principles,  –  common interoperable infrastructures,  –  common ontologies,  –  and mutual trust among others, …with the objective of preparing their members(organisations and support institutions) to be ready to collaborate in potential VOsthat will be established when a collaboration (business) opportunity arises. •VOs are short-term and dynamic coalitions of organisations that may be tailored within a VBE to respond to a single collaboration opportunity,anddissolveoncetheirmission/goal hasbeenaccomplished,andwhosecooperation is supported through computer networks. Camarinha-Matos & Afsarmanesh, 2007 VBEVO Long-termstrategyOpportunitydriven Preparedness  ©Romero, 2008  ECOLEAD •An instantiation processis a controlled approach to guide an organisation, or network, in the derivation process of a reference model or architecture through three modelling levels (general, partial and particular) allowing the detailing of business requirements in each level: from general business requirements(requirements definition),through the optimisation and specification of partial requirements(design specification),to their particular implementation in a specific domain (implementation description).Each modelling level analysed from different modelling points of view: function, information, resources, and organisation. “A VBE instantiation process can be referred as a controlled process characterizing a new breeding environment based-on a VBE reference model and the VBE domain specificities  ”  •The VBE instantiation processaddresses systematicallyaset of steps, which are supported by mechanisms and methodologies,for the specification and/or generation of a customized VBE model,describing its components to characterize a specific VBE typology,and these components together represent an instance of the VBE reference model. Basic Concepts on Instantiation  ©Romero, 2008  ECOLEAD VBE Reference Model •The VBE reference modelaims to synthese and formalize the base concepts, principles and practices for long-term collaborative networks. •The VBE reference modelproposed intends to provide a common framework for traditional breeding environments (production/service oriented) such as: industrial clusters, industry districts & business ecosystems, and new emerging ones like: disaster rescue networks & virtual laboratory networks.  ©Romero, 2008 In-CNO Abstractions    C   N   O  -   L   i   f  e  -   C  y  c   l  e   S   t  a  g  e  s  O  p e r a  t  i o n  E  v o  l  u  t  i o n   M o d e  l   I  n  t e  n  t  C r e a  t  i o n   D  i s s o  l  u  t  i o  n   G e  n e  r a  l  R e  p  r e s e  n  t a  t  i o  n  S  p e c  i  f  i c  M o d e  l  i  n g   I  m  p  l e  m e  n  t a  t  i o  n  M o d e  l  i  n g  About-CNO Abstractions “VBE reference model focuses on providing a comprehensive overview of the key elements/components of a breeding environment and the main requirements to create and manage one during its entire lifecycle”  ARCONModellingFramework Camarinha-Matos & Afsarmanesh, 2007
