Event Description

The 4th European Congress on e-Inclusion 2012: ‘Partnerships for a Digital Europe’ (ECEI12) is a free to attend event which will assemble 150 delegates from all 27 European member states. ECEI12 is taking place on Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th November 2012 in the European Quarter of Brussels. 

In a context of fiscal austerity and frozen public spending on the 2020 initiatives, Europe's Growth Strategy places a continual emphasis on the development of effective partnerships in order to tackle the current economic and social challenges facing modern Europe.

Public libraries are becoming the preferred delivery point for an increasing number of Ministries, Private sector partners and national scale NGOs.

  • Why is this?
  • Why are public libraries well placed to deliver?
  • How are public libraries providing inclusive community access to digital skills training, online education and employment resources at grass roots level?

You will hear from over 10 National Agencies, private sector and NGOs delivering programs in Europe’s public libraries. These speakers, coming from Denmark, Romania, Latvia, UK, Spain, Bulgaria, Belgium and Poland will show you why public libraries make good partners. 

Find out the latest from the European Commission on Partnership working and Europe 2020 initiatives; and gain a comprehensive understanding of the impact that the Europe's Growth Strategy will have on e-inclusion initiatives going forward.
