The goal of the project, co-financed by the European Social Fund is to ensure scientific
and research support and create a network of cooperation in development of broadband internet
access technologies and multimedia services. This Project, aimed at aiding establishment
of competitive knowledge-based economy and improving quality of life by efficient introduction
of information technology, is compatible with several strategies being currently implemented
in Poland and E.U.
The planned Network of Cooperation will work for small and medium enterprises from the
IT sector, network operators, providers of internet and multimedia services, as well as local
governments. The network will provide wide-ranging support in accordance with the policy
of establishing the knowledge-based society being implemented by Poland and the E.U. It will
allow to intensify activities related to creation of e-society by setting up contacts
and cooperation on regional level and ensuring effective transfer of knowledge.
The support is to be implemented through:
- Consultancy and training activities (seminars, specialized courses and workshops),
- Provision of access to newly created, integrated data services (WWW service),
- Support of development of advanced IT technologies (virtual laboratory).
We are convinced that such a profile of support it will be possible to identify real
needs of project beneficiaries and provide access to knowledge and data on broad spectrum
of issues linked to broadband internet access and multimedia services, including both
equipment and systems as well as services implemented and offered using them.
The project is currently underway in the following districts ("voivodships"):
Mazovia, Podlasie, Łódzkie and Pomerania; its products are targeted at beneficiaries
located in these regions. Future expansion of coverage area to include other regions
of Poland is possible.
