INSPIRATION'96, an international conference on the global Information Society and lifelong learning, will take place in Liverpool, United Kingdom, on 7-10 May 1996. The conference is being organized under the auspices of the "Liverpool City of Learning" initiative, a partnership of local bodies, formed in 1994, to harness education as the key to economic and social regeneration. It is endorsed by the European Year of Lifelong Learning.

The conference programme will focus on the critical changes required in the delivery of public services, particularly education and social services, and the need for public services to develop IT strategies which take account of new digital technologies.

It will also provide information on the various funding opportunities available from the European Community for the development of regional IT initiatives, including the Inter-Regional Information Society Initiative (IRISI). There will be presentations from officials from the Commission Directorates-General involved in funding in this area, and from Mrs. Edith Cresson, European Commissioner responsible for science, research and development.

In tandem with the conference, a "Knowledge Complex" will allow companies the opportunity to exhibit and demonstrate their products to the 1,000 participants expected to attend.
