Telecentre-Europe Network : Facilitating Knowledge Sharing and Building the Community

Telecentre-Europe Network came out of a workshop held in Barcelona in June 2007, after some 50 nongovernmental organizations observed that they shared similar electronic inclusion targets with the European Union and each other. Accordingly, the participants elected a taskforce to plan and create a telecentre network to spearhead knowledge sharing and provide a unified voice for all players as they engage with the EU on implementation of the Lisbon Strategy (2005) and the Riga Declaration (2006).

This grant will allow Esplai Foundation (Spain) to create appropriate online knowledge sharing tools for Telecentre-Europe Network, accelerate the development of a community of practice, help telecentres find the resources they need to become sustainable and otherwise promote e-skills initiatives in Europe.
