22 May Call for Good Practices and Policies in the Field Of Digital Inclusion
22 May, 2014
Unite-IT is an informal NETWORK of digital inclusion professionals (teachers and trainers, experts, practitioners, business, policy makers, academics) aiming at uniting Europe through digital empowerment. Unite IT creates a collaborative space for its members to engage in an open dialogue, share experience and resources, build contacts among each other and create partnerships. This will increase their capacities and raise awareness among the society about the unrealized potential of digital competences for economic and social inclusion.
