During the European Information Society Awareness Week in October 1997, members of MIDAS-NET (the network established under the INFO2000 programme to raise awareness of multimedia) and the Euro Info Centres network collaborated on a number of initiatives to inform SMEs on the latest developments in information and communications technologies.

Events organized by the local partners aimed to provide SMEs with practical information, success stories, hands-on practice and training in the use of new tools. The MIDAS-NET nodes focused on the development of the multimedia content industry, complementing the activities organized by the EICs.

The MIDAS-NET nodes contributed considerably to the Week by promoting the benefits of information technologies to SMEs through practical seminars, conferences and training activities. MIDAS-NET itself received considerable exposure, raising awareness of its existence and activities. This first year of cooperation between the two networks demonstrated the value of synergies between parallel Community initiatives.
