  14. Good Practice by the Infrastructure Work Group Survey of regions in 2006 (with DG Infso and CoR) Report published Jan 2007 With eris@ provided support to EC for the exhibition of the ‘Bridging the Broadband Gap’ conference, May 2007 eris@ has won the service contract to launch a web portal (European Broadband Exchange) to support stakeholders in their efforts to overcome market failure in under-served territories BridgingtheBroadbandGap www.broadband-europe.eu

  15. Good Practice by the Infrastructure Work Group • Stakeholders/users • Public authorities • Policy makers • Industry • Academics / consultants • Content / databases • GP projects • Strategies & action plans • Calls for tender • Industry notices • Decisions and legal cases www.broadband-europe.eu

  16. Good Practice by the Infrastructure Work Group • Stakeholders/users • Public authorities • Policy makers • Industry • Academics / consultants • Content / databases • GP projects • Strategies & action plans • Calls for tender • Industry notices • Decisions and legal cases EXPECTED LAUNCH June 2008 www.broadband-europe.eu

  17. Benefits & Challenges • Avoid re-inventing the wheel • Accelerate development, encourage innovation • Reduce/share risks – avoid mistakes and blind alleys • Reduce wasteful duplication (Europe does not need 150,000 CRM systems !!) – get better value for money • Cooperation and collaboration – rather than competing.

  18. Benefits & Challenges • The NIH Syndrome …. but, equally, the need to adapt (not copy blindly) • How to find effective ways to capture, store, disseminate and use good practice solutions – need for a solutions sharing network (policies, programmes, projects and even systems) • Coping with differences of language and diverse ‘cultures’ • Identifying and reporting good practices is an art form – not everyone has the skills (training). It’s not easy and … it’s not cheap either. • Motivating successful projects/implementations to document their successes. • The difficulty of finding and reporting ‘failures’ and ‘bad practices’. • The VITAL importance of inter-regional networking, and regional networking strategies – and the ongoing need for EC support.
