GoDigital Kicks off in Brussels, 6 April 2001
A half-day event on 6 April will launch the European Commission's GoDigital initiative and inform all stakeholders about the EU support for e-business take-up by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The Commission will seek the full support and active participation of Member States, regional authorities, the business community and other information multipliers, with a view to exploiting synergies between the GoDigital implementation plan and existing initiatives at national, regional and local levels.
Participants will include Enterprise and Information Society Commissioner Liikanen, Commission staff and about 250 participants from European industry associations, chambers of commerce, regional organisations and other European information multipliers.
What is GoDigital?
The GoDigital initiative aims to encourage SMEs to use the Internet in their business. It is a co-ordinated effort to ensure the overall consistency of various policies and actions to help SMEs go digital at European, national, regional and local levels, and to learn from practical experience with diverse strategies and support mechanisms. A Commission communication on the GoDigital initiative, which is part of the European Commission's wider eEurope initiative, was issued in mid-March 2001 (see IP/01/361).
