Italian conference to examine role of Internet in local government

Brussels, 30 January 2002

The EISCO 2002 conference on 'Internet portals and the re-engineering of local and regional governments in Europe' will take place in Cagliari, Italy, from to 29 May 2002.

The event is being organised by the Elanet network under the sponsorship of the region of Sardinia and the European Commission's Information Society DG. It will examine the issues of e-government, e-democracy and technological innovation for local economies. It will also look at new approaches in European research, including the role of the Sixth Framework programme for research (FP6). Speakers will include representatives from the Information Society DG and local and regional government associations.

Elanet (the European local authorities' telematic network) operates under the umbrella of CEMR (the Council of European municipalities and regions). It focuses on the deployment of information society measures at regional and local level. At present, the network consists of representatives from 19 European countries, including the 15 EU Member States.
