The Digital Poland Projects Centre, in partnership with Lodz University of Technology, is implementing a project co-financed by the European Funds entitled: "Cyfrowa Gmina".
The aim of the project is to increase the capacity of local government units and their subordinate entities to implement e-services, cyber security, remote working and learning. In the course of the project, the applicant intends to conduct grant competitions, under which local government units will be able to receive support for, among other things:
- digitisation of offices and other entities subordinate to them (e.g. schools) in the form of purchase of necessary software and IT equipment;
- popularising the use of cloud computing by territorial self-government units;
- diagnosis and improvement of cyber security of self-government IT systems.
Support is also envisaged for children from families affected by the liquidation of State Agricultural Farms, which will be provided by local government units in the form of purchase of computer equipment and Internet access service for remote learning.
The above-mentioned activities will allow the local government units to improve remote services for citizens and business entities, streamline organisational processes, analyse and plan tailored actions to reduce cyber threats, reduce digital exclusion of learners in the era of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The implementation of the project will have a positive impact on customer service times, as well as increasing the accessibility and universality of services by enabling remote citizen services.
A number of the above actions will contribute to offsetting the negative social and economic impacts caused by the occurrence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
