Code of EU Online Rights

07 Januari 2013

As part of the Digital Agenda for Europe actions, the Code of EU online rights compiles the basic set of rights existing in EU legislation and related to the digital environment. The objective of the Code is to find simple explanations of their legal rights and obligations, set out in a transparent and understandable way.

As foreseen in the Digital Agenda for Europe, this list of online rights and principles will be an important tool for inspiring trust and confidence among consumers and contribute to promote greater use of online services.

These basic rights protect citizens and consumers for instance when using online services, buying goods online, and in case of conflict with their providers of these services.

You may also find useful information about your online rights in the EU on the Your Europe website.

MIREIA - Measuring the Impact of eInclusion Actors

27 Augustus 2012

 

The MIREIA study aims to better understand the role of e-Inclusion intermediary actors and to create adequate instruments to facilitate the demonstration of their outcomes and their contribution to the achievement of European e- Inclusion policy goals.

 

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) play an essential role in supporting daily life in today's digital society. The EU policy on e-Inclusion aims at reducing gaps in ICT usage and promoting the use of ICT to overcome exclusion, and improve economic performance, employment opportunities, quality of life, social participation and cohesion.

 

The MIREIA research aims to address two key gaps identified at policy and research level:

a) the need to characterize the diverse set of actors involved in implementing eInclusion policies;

b) the lack of common methodologies and practice in measuring the impact of ICT for socio-economic inclusion.

 

The MIREIA research will carry out the following activities:

 

1. State of play Analysis - Review of Literature and practice on measuring ICT for socio-economic inclusion.

2. Selected Locality Mapping - to provide a detailed picture of eInclusion local landscapes in selected localities

3. Conceptualization and design of the Impact Assessment Framework for eInclusion intermediaries

4. Survey design and testing of the Impact Assessment Framework for eInclusion intermediaries

5. Development of an implementation methodology for applying the Impact Assessment Framework for eInclusion intermediaries

6. Stakeholders‘ Engagement, communication and dissemination

 

 

Dates

Start date: 1st January 2012

Preparatory studies: January – May 2012

1st Experts Workshop: 3-4 May 2012 (JRC-IPTS, Seville)

Stakeholders’ Consultation Workshops – 6th September 2012

Digital Agenda for Europe - new online platform launched

19 April 2012

A new online platform has been launched to discuss the Digital Agenda for Europe. Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the European Commission, published the news in her blog.

The forum of the Digital Agenda Assembly is an online space for discussion and feedback to prepare the Digital Agenda Assembly 2012 ("DAA12") on 21-22 June in Brussels, as well as the review of the Digital Agenda for Europe ("DAE"), planned for adoption in October.

Join the discussion, provide comments and launch new discussion topics.

What is the Digital Agenda?

From the official press release:

“The European Commission launched in March 2010 the Europe 2020 Strategy to exit the crisis and prepare the EU economy for the challenges of the next decade. […]

The Digital Agenda for Europe is one of the seven flagship initiatives of the Europe 2020 Strategy, set out to define the key enabling role that the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) will have to play if Europe wants to succeed in its ambitions for 2020.

The objective of this Agenda is to chart a course to maximise the social and economic potential of ICT, most notably the internet […]. Successful delivery of this Agenda will spur innovation, economic growth and improvements in daily life for both citizens and businesses.”

 

The Digital Agenda and e-learning

For the purpose of boosting the economy a list of planned actions has been put together, some of which relate directly to e-learning, others influence e-learning indirectly.

Pillar VI is exclusively focussing on enhancing e-skills, but other categories of actions, such as Pillars I (Digital Single Market) and  IV (Very Fast Internet), also contain actions which could have an imapct on the European e-learning market.

 

One of the actions most relevant to e-learning - Action 68 - calls on member states to mainstream e-learning in national policies. The Commission in turn will raise awareness on the benefits of adopting e-learning, sharing knowledge about results, practices and solutions available in Europe and laying the foundations for future plans.

The elearningeuropa.info community members have gatherred a variety of materials about this topic. Join the elearningeuropa.info community about 'Mainstreaming eLearning in National Policies' to contribute to the discussion.
