PEOPLE Subproject Info: SHAREIT


SHAREIT is a 18 month running project that started january 1 under the PEOPLE Programme of the EU. In line with the aim of PEOPLE, SHAREIT contributes to reinforce the cohesion and social welfare in partnersí areas, through strengthening and forging solidarities between young people facing social/economical exclusion.
SHAREIT aims at empowering and enhancing self-confidence and self-esteem in order to foster an entrepreneurial attitude in this target group. SHAREIT aims to promote cohesion through making available the most innovative and performing ICT tools, courses and insights into technology to the socially and economically vulnerable groups.
SHAREIT aims to increase ICT related entrepreneurial opportunities, social participation and fully-fledged citizenship by focusing on identifying good practices in the frame of social and e-Inclusion policies in order to empower young people facing social and economical exclusion, and regional and national policy makers in a variety of tools in achieving the best possible framework to empower their future: young people. What constitutes vulnerable youth means something different in different member states; second generation migrant youth and their local counterparts in Venice, immigrant youth in Noord Brabant, Euro orphans in Timis and Krakow, immigrant and socially challenged native local youth in Stockholm.
We find different actualizations in different EU countries, but SHAREIT assumes that there is an underlying pattern: the risks of alienation and possibilities for social contact and possible social cohesion in social networks.

Timing is one of the most important factors in the networked world where so many ideas run parallel and processes run consecutively. This was very apparent in Timis this week (June 17,18, 2010) where Delia Costan from General Direction for Social Affairs and Child Protection Timiş (the  Timis SHAREIT partner) had co-organized with Radu Ticiu from Timisoara Software Business Incubator a meeting with a very diverse group consisting of regional PEOPLE program manager Catalin Tiuch, industrial designers, professional coders (,  a webhosting company, a webdevelopment company, a representative from Eos, a representative from the arts and culture festival Simultan, a cultural manager, one of the organizers of the monthly geekmeeting in Timis ( and a management consultant with a story on volunteer management of a sportsclub that has gotten wise in managing online by 'accident' and is now able to not only give advice on a content but also in online management tools.

In September a second workshop was held to prepare the specifications for the minipilot in Timis.
