The Smart Regions project successfully created three tools that facilitate the promotion of the use of e-Government and e-Services by linking the 3 Interreg III B projects LoG-IN, BIRD and ICT4SMEs under one umbrella label “Smart Regions”.
Using the corporate concept and logo that were developed as part of the project, the following outcomes and results have been realised:
A multimedia website www.smartregions.eu was set up which offers visitors a full overview of the 45 identified good practice cases. A book presenting e-government or e-services projects in three languages was produced. The third delivery is a media package (DVD) which can be considered as a reference document of the three projects. It includes an extensive library with all relevant documents of the three participating projects and the good practice cases.
The products were appreciated by local and regional stakeholders. The communication project demonstrated local and regional success stories, re-assuring political support for future initiatives. Inspiration from other regions helped to create political commitment for similar projects, which eventually led to the Smart Cities project in the North Sea Region Programme 2007-2013.
The media package is a Windows application (see image below), which can be ordered on DVD at email@example.com.
