This paper presents an approach to design a Virtual Organization using MDD (Model Driven Development), in a fast and simple way. This approach employs a meta-model of Virtual Organization which has concepts and components at a suitable level of abstraction so that it can be implemented on different systems. The user will design the system for different platforms by means of unified agent models (UML-Like). The development process is presented as a set of steps which cover from the model design to the code generation.
