EUROCITIES provides a platform for its member cities to share knowledge and ideas, to exchange experiences, to analyse common problems and develop innovative solutions, through a wide range of Forums, Working Groups, Projects, activities and events.

 



EUROCITIES Knowledge Society Forum - TeleCities is currently focusing on:

  1. ensuring the development of an inclusive Knowledge Society by making ICTs and online services accessible to all citizens
  2. promoting the modernisation of local public administrations through the use of ICT solutions
  3. enhancing the role cities play in the development of the Knowledge Society by promoting the uptake of ICT solutions and stimulating innovation.
  4. fostering the knowledge-based economy

The knowledge-based society presents great opportunities in terms of new employment possibilities, new tools for education and training, easier access to public services, supporting the social inclusion of disadvantaged groups, and the economic development of Europe's regions and cities.
