Digital Divide in the Danube Region: Is it still significant in explaining ICT adoptions in eDemocracy and eGovernment?
The conference aims to explore to what extent the Danube Region is digitally divided, what the driving forces of these divisions are and what factors determine them. Understanding the Digital Divide is pivotal to promote cohesion in the Danube Region and to design effective policies to enhance regional integration.
