The First Open International Forum on mobile technologies for social inclusion will focus on analyzing and raising awareness about the needs and mobile-based solutions for groups under risk of digital exclusion in Latin America (low-income and isolated communities, chronic patients and people with disabilities). Relevant stakeholders from all over the world will participate providing their expertise from technological, social and politic-economical perspectives. The M-Inclusion awards for “Apps4Change” Challenge Program 2012, which recognizes groundbreaking mobile solutions for social inclusion, will take place during the conference. M-Inclusion is a project co-funded by the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme. The consortium, led by Telefonica, also includes Futura Networks Colombia, Innovation Engineering, Econet, the Nokia Technology Institute of Brazil, the Federal University of Minas Gerais in Brazil, Cayetano Heredia University in Peru and the Polytechnic University of Valencia in Spain.

Senior (Social Ethical and Privacy Needs in ICT for Older People: a Dialogue Roadmap) project is organising its final conference on 27 November in Brussels, Belgium. This support action developed a systematic assessment of the social, ethical and privacy issues involved in ICT and ageing. This will help to understand what lessons should be learned from current technological trends and how to plan strategies for governing future developments, ensuring that new ICT meet the needs of senior citizens without compromising privacy and ethics. The main outcome is a roadmap which will be presented then as well.

Where?: Borschette Centre, Brussels, Belgium
