Information about projects with the participation of ELANET members
ISLA (1998-1999)
I.S.L.A.was a transnational project carried out in Austria, Finland and Spain to monitor the use of Information and Communication Technology (I.C.T.) by Local Authorities/Municipalities ranging from 5,000 to 120,000 inhabitants.
NET for nets (1999-2001)
A European research and technology development project aimed at a public access system managed by a transnational network to provide services on Internet to citizens, companies, associations and other community organisations.
EUSLAND (2002-2003)
EUSlanD is an international project, co-financed by the European Commission under the Information Society Technology Programme, to create a flexible and open networking system on the Internet - called ESY - for the use of Local and Regional governments' experts from all Europe. ESY shall allow these experts to retrieve and integrate data standing in different databases at municipal and regional level, by making use of intelligent electronic agents and supporting tools built to facilitate the provision, semantic classification and sharing of information. On the other hand, ESY will help them to exchange points of view and know-how, based on their own experiences and on benchmarking exercises that the project will carry out to identify best practices. Experts are being invited to participate in the five thematic networks, organised under the framework of the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) and its European telematic network initiative ELANET, to test and demonstrate the system: Financial opportunities through EU programmes; Implementation of European legislation at regional/national level; Urban Transport solutions in larger cities; Employment policies by Local and Regional Authorities; Local and Regional innovation ICT-based (included technology watching).
KEeLAN (2002)
The KEeLAN project (“Key Elements for Electronic Local Authorities’ Networks”) was launched in February 2002 as part of the European Fifth Framework Program for Research and Development and is supported by the European Commission. The project ended on 30 April 2002, however its findings have been disseminated by the partners throughout Europe also after this date.
Three Regional Operating networks working on Strategic Electronic Scenarios.The objective of the project was to develop a relevant roadmap for future research work under the 6th Framework Programme of Research and Technological Development of the European Commission. It concentrated on state of the art of research and the use of Open Source Software in e-government and related e-business and learning processes.
PRELUDE (2003-2005)
PRELUDE project (IST, 5th FP) had the aim to bring forward the regional and local dimension of research, technology and innovation within ERA (European Research Area) and eEurope 2005. Clustering was the main methodology that PRELUDE used to support emerging regional and local networking, involving administrations. At the end there were 9 European Clusters for Innovation, creating sustainable networks of co-operation in eGovernment, eBusiness, eLearning & Knowledge Management, and eInclusion. But the general conceptual framework of “the digital business ecosystems model” was unable to take into account all different processes in regional territories. The necessity to create an alternative model (Societal Learning Model or SLM), taking into account the societal and process dimensions operating in the regional and European clustering emerged. Committee for Science, Innovation and Research (SIR Commitee) was created to continue the research work under Prelude Challenge grid of regions.
ADDME! (2009-2012)
Activating drivers for digital empowerment in Europe
CEMSDI (2010-2012)
Civil-servant Empowerment for Multi Media Service Delivery ICT-enabled The CEMSDI project focuses on capacity building of civil servants and other practitioners forming part of the service delivery chain in territories in need of active eInclusion and eGovernment policies. The project focuses in particular on Local Governments which serve around 8.000 inhabitants or fewer, where the digital divide tends to be the largest. For these administrative units, the empowerment of Public Officers and their administrations is vital in order to ensure the implementation of digital inclusion policies, which target the socially disadvantaged, modernise the organisations of public administration and efficiently deliver eGovernment and other local services. The project will use the DLA (Digital Local Agenda) as a key instrument to achieve its goals. Five specific pilot actions at European level in Italy, Norway, Portugal, Spain and the UK will validate the training and empowerment instruments created by the CEMSDI network of eGovernment experts so as to provide a trans-European methodology that can later be implemented in other territories in European countries.
