Telecentre-Europe info session in Brussels

Telecentre-Europe organized an information exchange session in Brussels last week, where the Co-chairs Gabi Barna and Ian Clifford presented plans for the network to an audience of representatives of the following European Commission DG’s:

- Information Society and Media

- Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities

- Education and Culture

The purpose of this meeting was to raise Telecentre-Europe’s profile within the European Commission, by lobbying the contribution that telecentres are making to achieve the goals of the Digital Agenda, and by showing how a united network of telecentres across Europe can be a viable and effective partner in implementing the eInclusion policies.

During the meeting a number of valuable opportunities arose in the following areas, which the Steering Committee will continue to follow up:

- Twinning programme for telecentre related organizations to support exchange of knowledge.

- Telecentre-Europe could become more active in the European Commission consultations

- European Commission involvement in Get Online Day 2011.

- European Commission presence at the Telecentre Europe Summit 2010

- An award scheme through the DG Information Society and Media for eInclusion Champions
