Modern enterprises tend to form virtual but legally consolidated schemas for collaborating in order to function and survive in constantly changing grounds, where competition always grows and the emergence of new technologies keeps on posing new challenges. They collaborate in virtual organizations, where several segments of work or parts of collaboration can be often identified as recurring and be reused. In order to take advantage of this repetition, we consider the introduction of Collaboration Patterns in VOs. We propose a combined schema for using Collaboration Patterns along with the initiatives of the Event driven technology, in order to capture the ad hoc nature of these collaborations and cope with the demanding and rapidly changing environments of virtual organizations.
