We are in a state of transforming the structure of Ariadne – we all suffer from huge amounts of spam emails, and we definitely don’t want you to move Ariadne to your ‘Deleted Items’ folder.

The length of the articles should be kept brief – content should be focused and – most importantly – the focal areas should not be of low content quality. Long texts are simply ignored and neglected.

Ariadne’s logo is supplemented with the explanatory note about the nature of this newsletter: provide a forum for “advancing technologies, ideas and provocative exchange of views and opinions in the areas of e-government, e-participation and governance”. In this spirit, all of you who would like to share with us your views or simply provide us with some interesting and worth to read or visit link, please by all means do so!

Implementing Low-Cost e-Gov Solutions in Europe, in Africa, All over the Globe: Report on Experiences
Excerpts from a presentation by Marios Chatzidimitriou to appear as part of the e-Learning Africa Conference 2007
“We need a simple cheap solution that works anywhere, eliminating the need for Public Authorities to perform costly adoption feasibility studies, or building costly infrastructure to deploy it on.”
Public sector in Europe had the luck to receive huge amounts of funding from different sources (direct funds from European Commission Programmes, Structural Funds, National Community Support Framework Programmes, etc.). However this plethora of resources did not result into successful project implementations. The treatment to this was also not the best: people simply increased the budgets in their projects while similar or even bigger scale suboptimalities emerged. >>

Angeliki is a Healthcare Teacher at the 2nd Technical Highschool of Katerini, Greece. She received a B.Sc. in Healthcare from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece, and she is currently studying Computer Science at the Greek Open University. She has been involved in a number of National and European projects relating to migration, racicm and xenophovia, including the “Crossing Borders – Migration in Europe” Comenius I school project.

The game aims to stimulate interest in, and raise awareness about human rights, racism, migration and xenophobia, through motivating students to work with, and actively explore our stereotypes about different categories of “minority” groups, such as immigrants, refugees, disabled people, etc.

Each board space of the Game engages students into different activities (role-playing, brainstorming, pantomime, etc), aiming to demonstrate common discriminations in our everyday life.
