European citizens do not participate equally in the Information society: in fact, the digital gap is moving down from infrastructures to uses. Based on this observation, local authorities in Europe have developed Digital Public Spaces (DPS) promoting e-inclusion.

E-coop Wiki

The 7th European Innovation Summit, organised by Knowledge4innovation, will take place from 7-10 December 2015 in the European Parliament in Brussels.
The Interreg Europe programme financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) aims to improve the implementation of regional development policies and programmes, in particular programmes for Investment for Growth and Jobs and European Territorial Cooperation (ETC) programmes. By co-financing projects and four thematic platforms it allows regional and local public authorities and other players of regional relevance across Europe to exchange practices and ideas on the way public policies work, and thereby find solutions to improve their strategies for their own citizens.
‘Digital native’ is a term increasingly used in public discourse to describe the generations of young people who grow up surrounded by digital technologies.

A micro-implementation organized within C4’s scope is understood as a practical testing of the E-coop concept. It implied partial or total transfer of BP identified through C3 within a voluntary territory in Poland.
