The eBSN is structured as follows:
- The eBSN Steering Group consists of representatives of the European Commission, the participating countries, academics and the business community. The Steering Group decides on the objectives and modus operandi of the network and the practical arrangements to foster cooperation, and specifies the overall policy priorities for action. The Steering Group meets about twice a year, on invitation of the European Commission.
- The eBSN web portal links all identified stakeholders and initiatives, and offers further information, statistical data and best practice examples.
- As its main forum for exchange, the eBSN organises up to four thematic workshops per year. These bring together interested stakeholders to deepen the dialogue on specific e-business-related issues. Recently, workshops have focused on ICT solutions for SMEs, the deployment of e-standards, and sectoral policy approaches. Workshops provide an opportunity for sharing learning points from good policy practice. Workshops are hosted and organised by eBSN members, often taking place in the country that holds the EU Presidency. In total, 15 eBSN workshops have been held in 2003-2007.
