(This document requires the use of Adobe Acrobat Reader). The Concluding Report of the Urbact Information Society Network, May 2006.
The Information Society Network (ISN) is made up of partners from 13 European cities lead by Manchester, UK. The principal focus of the network has been on the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to promote social inclusion and economic development. The work of the ISN is essentially pragmatic. Members of the network have presented their projects and programmes to each other in a series of seminars and workshops facilitated by an expert in the field. This report is the result of that process. The report is analytical and is illustrated by the more informal presentations of illustrative case studies which are to be found running in parallel at the bottom of each page. Both sections have been colour coded for clarity.
