Euforic 'web2share' awareness and training in 2007

During 2006, Euforic organized several 'web 2' or 'new web' training or awareness activities, mainly for information and communication people working in development organizations. To help our members and others interested in these applications and tools, Euforic has launched a 2007 'web2share' initiative, including:

Training and awareness sessions:
February | Norway: Awareness session - Introduction to the New Web
March | Brussels: Awareness session with CONCORD - Web-based retrieval tools and new services
March | Maastricht: Training - Putting the New Web to work
June | Brussels: Awareness session alongside Annual Meeting - Introduction to the New Web
September | Rome: Awareness session - Introduction to the New Web
November | Bonn: Training - Putting the New Web to work
December | Norway: Awareness session - Introduction to the New Web

Projects: We are working with several organizations on projects, including communication projects using blogs, wikis, and social bookmarking, web reach and audience assessments, collaborative search tools, the use of 'new web' tools within research information projects, and further development of training and awareness materials in this area.

Meetings. Euforic contributed to the conference 'Participatory web for development' organized by CTA, Dgroups, FAO, and other partners in Rome in September 2007.

If you want to host or co-organize an event or are interested in partnering to make more effective use of these tools, let us know!
