Newsletter 2013/1

WELCOME TO SEE TV-WEB NEWS!

SEE TV-WEB represents an opportunity to decrease the Digital Divide in the South East European region by using the free capacity of digital terrestrial television broadcasting frequency spectrum for delivering selected Internet content and ensuring limited Internet experience to underprivileged groups of users. The solution focuses on vulnerable groups such as the elderly, economically weak and all those who have no access to internet services due to lack of access (rural) or limited computer/internet literacy.

In this first edition of SEE TV-WEB News, we have prepared a selection of articles about the activities of SEE TV-WEB consortium, upcoming events, as well as other interesting information related to digital switchover in the target countries.

By exploring this newsletter, you will be able to have a first idea of SEE TV-WEB initiatives and expected effects on solving some issues of e-Inclusion and Digital Divide.

I am happy to invite you to follow and participate in our activities that we will be promoting among policy makers and stakeholders in the involved South East European countries.

For more information on the project please visit the project website at http://www.see-tvweb.eu or follow us on LinkedIn.

I wish you a pleasant reading!
