An EU-27 survey of intermediary organisations operating on the education, social and employment sectors and providing IT training has produced a first ever assessment of the e-Inclusion intermediary sector.

Half of the e-Inclusion actors go further and offer employment–related training. And for two out of three, local government funding is the main financial resource.
