Welcome to the European Knowledge Community on Digital Inclusion, supported by the MEDICI project – Mapping the evolving Digital Inclusion landscape to support cohesion and integration and funded by the European Parliament to identify, collect and map good practices in the field of Digital Inclusion for vulnerable groups in Europe.

The Knowledge Community is aimed to stimulate exchange of digital inclusion stories and knowledge creation among all the stakeholders engaged in the fight against digital exclusion affecting vulnerable groups, ranging from policy makers to researchers and to practitioners carrying out projects and initiatives in this field in the 27 Member States and the UK.
The Knowledge Community can count on a robustly validated Catalogue and Map (the Digital Inclusion Atlas) representing the ‘state of the art’ in Digital Inclusion ‘good practices’: European projects and interventions for the Digital Inclusion of vulnerable groups.
Members of the Knowledge Community can contribute to keeping the Digital Inclusion Atlas up to date by submitting their own digital inclusion story. The submitted cases will be first showcased in the Digital Inclusion Stories Space, an incubation space to support the development of newer digital inclusion interventions, enhance collaboration among practitioners (who can get inspiration from the experience of others, submit their case and rate the cases of other members) and accompany submitted cases in the process of becoming a good practice suitable for the MEDICI catalogue.
This community has been created as part of the activities of the MEDICI project and is governed by the members of the MEDICI Consortium:
Universidad Internacional de La Rioja (Spain) – coordinator
Diesis Network (Belgium)
Smart Bananas (Italy)
Tavistock Institute of Human Relations (United Kingdom)
Universidade Catolica Portuguesa (Portugal)
