    • 1. MIREIA Measuring the impact of eInclusion Building evidence to Intermediary actors measure the socio- on Digital Literacy, Skills, and Inclusion Goals economic impact of telecentres on InclusionGianluca Misuraca, Senior Scientific OfficerCristina Torrecillas, Scientific Officer *http://www.casadellibro.com/libro-mireia- la-estrella-un-libro-musical-para-mirar-tocar- The views expressed by the authors are not necessarily those of the EC y-escuchar/9788434885240/864859 October 29, 2012 1
    • 2. What do we need toknow?(for Building evidence to measure the socio-economic impact oftelecentres on Inclusion)Who the INTERMEDIARIES are:  Locality Mapping: TYPOLOGY OF INTERMEDIARIES  EU Mapping: Estimation of the sizeHow to measure their impact:  The Impact Assessment Framework: TYPOLOGY OF ACTIVITIES AND INDICATORS  Pilot-Test of the Impact Assessment Framework

    • 5. Locality MappingPreliminary FindingsSpain, El Raval, Barcelona Context Multi-ethnic neighbourhood with migrants of low-income and a mix Organizational Type NA (from survey) Landscape of eInclusion • Cybercafes more prominent actor coherent with composition of Rabal actors (high migrant population) (from survey + desk • Followed by Municipal WiFi hot spots that are not "formally" recognized research) as actors • Libraries are gaining significance in the area and many include in plans eInclusion goals • Interestingly, there are fewer telecenters compared with cybercafés and libraries. Main Target groups • Telecenters in area are opened for all citizens but seniors prevail (from survey) • Libraries open to all groups but ID card required for Internet access (undocum migrants cant enjoy most of the services) • Cybercafes overwhelmingly serve migrant population and seldom tourists Outcomes Identified NA Yet
    • 6. Locality MappingPreliminary FindingsLatvia, ZemgaleContext Rural/Ag area with high level unemployment and economic migration of youthOrganizational Type Municipal/State = 66%(from survey) NGO Sector = 21% Private Orgs = 11% Ad Hoc Projects = 3%Landscape of eInclusion • Libraries the largest actor and play the role of telecenters. All offer a list ofactors common digital inclusion services.(from survey + desk • Municipal LLL Centers although small in number they provide a wider rangeresearch) of eSkills training and also ICT support for other orgs • NGOs in Zemgale region usually operate w/small budgets and no paid staff – mostly run by volunteers (dif. from national NGOs)Main Target groups • Young adults and children are the two top priority groups for eInclusion actors(from survey) in area. Coherent since libraries defined these two groups as primary audience • Unemployed and job seekers considered top priority for 37% of organizations • People w/physical disabilities target audience for relatively small % of orgs (21%) • Women not considered a disadvantaged group in LatviaOutcomes Identified • Almost 80% provide free access to computers and Internet • 63% provide basic training. Few orgs provide training for beginners or for professionals • Orgs serve as social community centres. 71% consultations on private and government e-services • Important advocacy role raising awareness about benefits of digital society
    • 7. Locality MappingPreliminary FindingsUK, Sunderland Post-industrial city with high level of unemployment specially among Context young adults. One of highest levels of NEETs in the country Organizational Type Municipal/State = 15% (from survey) NGO Sector = 64% Private Orgs = 15% MISSING 6% Landscape of eInclusion • Vast majority of actors based in the formal educational sector [interesting actors in a city with one of the highest level of NEETs] (from survey + desk • Followed in presence by community-based orgs research) Main Target groups • Orgs identified as third sector serve needs of broader community. (from survey) • Some, however, target needs of specific groups (BME 3 orgs, Youth 12 orgs, and Disability 4 orgs) Outcomes Identified • Educational and Employment related services most commonly cited as outcomes • Public and more equal access to ICT opportunities. • Disability support orgs primarily create employment and job searching outcomes • Youth Centres identified a wider variety of outcomes – access to employment, communication, recreation
