Wat betreft de uitnodiging, bedankt! Ik was vaag aan het plannen om aanwezig te zijn op een aantal events in het kader van de digitale week. We werken namelijk al even samen met LINC en VSNG (Ilse Van Gorp van Digidak)

Hopelijk kunnen we elkaar dan even spreken. Of ik loop even langs in Geel? (en u later in ons project?)

Beste Jan,

Fijn ook een Belg te mogen begroeten in het netwerk.
Ik ben coördinator bij ATEL vzw, een organisatie in Antwerpen die zich enerzijds bezighoudt met beroepsopleidingen en anderzijds met de digitale kloof in Antwerpen. Misschien moeten we elkaar eens contacteren. Ik ben bereikbaar op 03/641.08.50 (ATEL algemeen nummer)

met vriendelijke groet,
Kirsten Dewaelheyns
