Main beneficiaries: universities, non-profit organisations, international organisations

Priorities and funded actions:

Objective
* To contribute to assessing the benefits of a broadband connectivity via satellite in areas impacted by digital divide with the support of regional or national public authorities, as a precursor of the even larger benefits that the European Gigabit Society will later make largely available

Priorities
* Analysis of EU regions in long-term digital divide and impacted sectors and population notably for schools: the identification of some relevant regions, schools and other stakeholders must be in the proposals;
* Assessment of simple, efficient and cost-effective implementation schemes (e.g. vouchers) to ensure easy access to satellite broadband connectivity: the proposals must present solutions ensuring easy access to satellite broadband connectivity;
* Assessment, through deployment of broadband internet access via satellite to some unconnected schools (“field trials”), of the benefit of distribution via satellite of educational multimedia content relying, to the extent possible, on data and services offered by the Union space programmes;
* Development of outreach and communication activities

Among financed actions
* Coordination activities between the consortium members and with the concerned stakeholders;
* Studying, deployment and testing/validation actions aiming at connecting schools;
* Conferences, seminars;
* Training activities;
* Awareness raising and dissemination actions;
* Actions aiming at the creation and improvement of networks, exchanges of good practices;
* Studies, analyses, mapping projects
