Transnational actions that will facilitate the integration of the skilled labour force into cities and towns PROS - Possibility to incorporate all interested BRISE Inward investment WG partners PROS -Very suited to programme priorities -Possibly better chances than in AA CONS -Difficulty in finding new partners ( 1, ideally 2) -Small-ish P4 1 st call budget CONS - Difficulty in finding new partners ( 1, ideally 2) - Cantabria and SS are not NWE partners

P4 - Obj 4.1 Examples: - Transfers of know-how acquired in provision of a universal service (mail distribution or internet access, for example) in fragile rural zones; - Joint supply of services of general socio-economic interest through cooperation of cities and regions and wide use of ICT solutions (e.g. health services, education services, employment services); Potential partners: Derry, Donegal, Galway?, Belgian/German/French partner, (Olomouc?) P3 – Obj 3.3 Examples: - Joint transnational actions aimed at promoting the use of ICT in order to overcome the ‘digital divide’ in North West Europe - The use of advanced ICT to reduce the need to travel and to replace physical mobility through virtual exchanges P4 – Obj 4.3 Examples: - Transnational pilots and actions to improve the accessibility of, and access to services, including ICT, for areas affected by ageing and depopulation PROS -Possibility to incorporate main 3 project drivers -Suited to programme priorities PROS -Suited to programme priorities CONS -Difficulty in finding new partners ( 1, ideally 2) -Small P4 1 st call budget CONS - Insufficient ERNACT partners and difficulty in finding new partners ( 2, ideally 3) - Cantabria, one of main project drivers, is not in NWE
