Abstract

At their own pace, independently and benefiting from the supervision of trainers, citizens can learn to use a computer, connect to the Internet, benefit from generally free computer training or deepen their knowledge, according to the program established by their municipality. The BRIC’s (Brussels Region Informatics Centres) DPSs (Digital Public Space) service consists of equipping this public space (school, municipal premises, etc.) with computer equipment: computers, laptops, software, screens, printers, interactive projectors, etc. The software installed is of the “open source” type. The BRIC further contributes to reducing the digital divide in the Brussels-Capital Region by ensuring, for a period of four years, the maintenance of this equipment.

In order for the DPSs offer the best services to the citizens, and to guide them through their process of digital appropriation, material resources are necessary. Therefor the BRIC aims to equip all the DPSs that were awarded with the label of the BCR (Brussels Capital Region) with the material necessary for their daily activities to go smoothly: computers, programs, printers, projectors, etc.
