DIEGO Seminar on Digital Inclusion

No citizen left behind

This free seminar, which is organised by the Mid-West Regional Authority and Limerick City Council, will present the policies and trends with regard to Digital Inclusion in Ireland and the progress to date of implementing the “Digital Agenda for Europe”.

The seminar agenda presents policies and strategies at national and local level in order to boost ICT innovative projects and to combat digital exclusion in Ireland and in Limerick.

The DIEGO (Digital Inclusive e-Government) project is framed in the context of the Digital Agenda for Europe, which aims to maximise the economic and social potential of ICT. The DIEGO partners, belonging to six different EU Member States - Spain, the U.K., Italy, Greece, Cyprus and Ireland, repreented by the Mid-West Regional Authority and Limerick City Council – are currently piloting sustainable solutions to provide all citizens with easier and accessible access to e-Government services. These pilots fulfil the motto of the project: “No citizen left behind”.

The pilot projects, available through different channels, are currently being deployed throughout the partner regions to assess the viability and success of the service in making eGovernment more accessible to all. The Limerick pilot project will be presented during the seminar to demonstrate the approach being taken in this Region and the successes to date.
