Programme: 6th Framework Programme
Duration: 1.10.2006 – 30.09.2008
The main objective of the project is to develop a set of indicators capable of describing the degree to which the social impacts of ICT reach a number of exclusion prone social communities, in particular disabled, unemployed, immigrants, and older people and then disseminate knowledge to national and EU stakeholders on the ICT indicators for the exclusion prone communities and to propose policy instrument and technology amendments so that any observed exclusion maybe removed leading to a gradual removal of the obstacles that the exclusion prone communities currently face in enjoying the social benefits of ICT.
