Digipolis is the inter-municipal ICT services organization (governmental, but strictly non-commercial) for the two largest cities in Flanders (Belgium), Ghent and Antwerp. Digitaal.Talent@Gent is a strategic programme that initiates and coordinates projects in the city of Ghent with all local stakeholders in order to work to e-inclusion in a sustainable way. The programme has been running since 2006 and is a collaboration between Digipolis, the City of Ghent and OCMW (public social services centres, CPAS).

The strategic programme is a best practice in Flanders and Belgium. Publication in English: Mariën, I., Van Audenhove, L. (2012) Towards a multi-stakeholders approach for digital inclusion: A case study of Ghent’s ‘Digitaal.Talent’ program. IAMC 2012 Conference. (direct link to publication).
