Promoting eWork in Remote Regions: Lessons from FlexWork

IOS Press
The FlexWork project provided a set of knowledge objects (handbook, templates, cases, decision support tools) to business advisors in ten European regions and assisted them in learning about flexible working. These advisors were also provided with standardised presentation materials and supported in deploying knowledge about flexible working to their constituencies of SME clients at regional level (multiplier). The demand for knowledge about flexible working among business advisors and their clients was seen to be significant, and uptake was supported by evidence of usage of online materials. The experience supported refinement of the package of materials, and provided several lessons of benefit to future initiatives supporting regional information society uptake.
