This two-day study visit organised by IAN International Aid Network and EOS gathered eight representatives of local NGOs
and Government of the Republic
of Serbia. The team
visited four telecentres in Temisoara and nearby towns. First, the team was
welcomed by Gabi Barna, EOS Romania director, Cornelia Popescu, eCentre network
Project Manager and Alina Zamfir, Biblionet. They presented a global situation
government and regional activities related to promotion of digital literacy through
the Knowledge Economy Project and Global Libraries Program.
After that Serbian team together with Cornelia Popescu travelled to Sannicolau Mare where we visited ATPD eCentre and
talked with Laura Rusu, Director of ATPD and other actors within this Centre.
We learned how local authorities support telecentre movement and what ways of collaboration
between community organisations and local authorities are possible.
On the second day the team visited the eCentre in the village Recas . We spoke with the Centre Manager and exchanged experiences about the
cooperation between local municipality and eCentre in Romania and Serbia. Finally, the team visited PAPI
in the village Fârliug. This PAPI is settled in the premises of the local
school and shares some of the resources with the school.
The study visit was a good opportunity for sharing experiences, challenges and best practices between Romanian and Serbian
Telecentres. Common idea of all participants is to continue communication and
to start developing ideas for new future projects.
