2 Speaker 1 - Peter Radley Digital Inclusion - ensuring services reach everyone All EU citizens, family and friends in other MS - does this mean we need pan-European e-Gov services? Government is the main provider of services to citizens - health, education, security… These services need to be available to everyone Therefore, European citizens need access over any network and all networks must be open to all content and applications for e-citizenship

3 Speaker 2 - Anna Lisa Boni Customer Relations Management in local public e-services Local government is the main provider of public services Need to analyse user needs and expectations Expectations are changing: greater transparency and efficiency.

5 Speaker 4 - Rodolfo Cattani Access to eGovernment for the disabled EU Charter of Fundamental Rights: to achieve equality for disabled people, the right not to be discriminated against has to be complemented by the right to benefit from measures to ensure their independence, integration, participation.
