European Ministerial e-Inclusion Conference

Europe's biggest event for e-Inclusion – using ICT to combat social exclusion
Celebrating success and shaping the agenda

As the "e-Inclusion: be part of it!" campaign reaches its conclusion, it is time to celebrate achievements and showcase successes in the field of e-Inclusion. It's also time to take stock of what still lies ahead and renew the commitments to achieve inclusion in the information society for all. The 2008 e-Inclusion Ministerial Conference will showcase the best of e-Inclusion initiatives and shape the future European e-Inclusion agenda.

The event will host e-inclusion leaders from industry, academia and voluntary sector and will address topics as diverse as shaping European e-Accessibility environments, investing in information technology for sustainable elderly care, digital literacy and insights into future technology perspectives.

European Ministers will come together to measure progress, refresh the Riga vision, and gain valuable insights from cutting-edge initiatives.
