Investing in Broadband Infrastructure for Economic Stimulus and Growth

Once more our partner – the eDevelopment Thematic Group of the World Bank – will have a workshop in the context of their Government Transformation initiative.

It deals with Investing in Broadband Infrastructure as Part of Fiscal Stimulus Programs and the surrounding questions – what’s the reason for such investments, what are the outcomes and how can it be implemented. The case of Spain – which is also a big player in the ICT4D field due to my subjective judgement – will be presented.

Read a longer introduction at the event page.

The workshop will take place in Washington again, but also be broadcasted over the web.

What: Investing in Broadband Infrastructure for Economic Stimulus and Growth

Where: Washington DC, also available via webcast

When: 22 June, 15:00 Vienna time
