IMPORTANT NOTICE: This workshop will take place OCTOBER 13!(Please, disregard the system that may cite a different date)
This workshop is an initiative of DG INFSO, aiming to encourage the sharing of good practice in the area of Inclusive eGovernment.
In addition, this workshop will aim to disseminate current research and development activities carried out within the two eInclusion areas as well as other research initiatives within the European Union Framework Programmes.
Therefore, the focus will be on the necessity to improve the accessibility and availability of everyone to ICT products and services, in order to create new employment, education and equal living standards for all; connecting them to jobs, new forms of communication and participation, and to public services.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
â€¢ eGovernment policies targeted at groups at risk of exclusion
â€¢ User segmentation in eGovernment services
â€¢ Inclusive eGovernment in healthcare
â€¢ Multichannel delivery services
â€¢ eGovernment services: the â€˜value chainâ€™ dimension
â€¢ Design, production, delivery, access and use of inclusive eGovernment services
â€¢ â€œInclusive by designâ€ versus specific assistance - tailored services
â€¢ Marketing, targeting and promotion of eGovernment services for specific disadvantaged groups
Ultimately, this workshop will aim to share good practice initiatives, knowledge and experiences on the field as a means of accelerating the uptake of eInclusion solutions and improving both policy-making and research for now and the future.
