European Directory of Women and ICT, Tender Specifications, SMART 2008/0057

Funded under: FP7-ICT

Abstract

In order to facilitate access to and the sharing of information regarding initiatives relating to the participation of women in the ICT sector and the exchange of experience and best practice and in order to discourage the fragmentation and repetition of activities, the European Commission wishes to set up a European Directory of Women and ICT (WICT). The European Directory will be an Internet-based platform comprising all key stakeholders and activities (public, private, research, NGO and project) in the European Union. It will serve as a searchable database where activities, interventions, best practices, relevant statistics and indicators for women in ICT from all parts of the EU will be available. It will also provide a platform for interaction between stakeholders in particular for person mobility, development of skills and entering or re-entering the labour market. It will have additional practical uses such as deciding on new activities or building on existing ones, seeking partners and setting up consortia to bid for projects and other. The Directory will address all stakeholders, male and female, categorised in groups of activity. It will include CVs, keywords corresponding to the area of interest and expertise, current personal and professional activities and past, present and forthcoming events related to the area of WICT at large.
