What we do as an organization (100-word description)
The Consortium "Fernando de los Ríos", for the Development of the Information and Knowledge Society in Andalusia (southern Spain), is a governmental body constituted by the eight "Diputaciones Provinciales" of Andalusia and the Andalusian Regional Government ("Junta de Andalucia"), located in the city of Granada. Its Mission is to foster and to spread projects leading to the development of a Digital Environment that allows the Andalusian Society to grow culturally, financially and socially. Actually, we manage a Regional Network of more than 900 Telecentres ("GUADALINFO NETWORK" www.guadalinfo.es), and more than 800 people are directly employed in this network. Through this physical and virtual network, more than 300 Social Innovative Projects have been proposed and are being developed in The region by the own Andalusian citizens. Guadalinfo has become the first territorial, professionally managed social network with the physical presence and support of local agents. It is now a key element in the social networks in Spain, as the pioneering catalyst for change in the territory by providing access to contents generated by citizens and institutions alike.
