In the last decades it has been presenting a convergence process through which organisations, belonging to different sectors, co-evolve in the same direction. Between networks is it possible to identify a process of convergence? Which type of network can we consider? The network will be analysed according to three perspectives: social studies, Industrial/International Marketing and Purchasing – IMP- approach, and Strategic Nets. The attention is focused on the IMP approach, in which the network is made up by a net of relationships among different knots (organisations and business units). In same cases such as health sector and home living context, the structure is naturally based on “net”. In these contexts new technologies have created the development of telemedicine-telehealth network and home automation network. Analysing the interdependence inside/outside the network, we want to investigate the process of convergence between telemedicine-telehealth network and home automation network.
