On 13 December 2018, the Government
of the Brussels-Capital Region approved a memorandum on e-inclusion
. This first memorandum laid the foundations for a digital inclusion policy in the BCR, centred around the Region, the municipalities and the actors in the field (the DPS).
This memorandum also provided for the appointment of a Digital Inclusion Coordinator
within the BRIC. Regional Coordination is responsible for acting as a link between the sector and the government and for synchronising actions at the regional level and with the other federated entities.
Coordination also brings together and leads a "digital inclusion" Working Group
which includes the majority of Brussels regional bodies (Actiris, Bruxelles Formation, Brussels Fiscality, Brussels Environment, talent.brussels, Innoviris, etc.) and private stakeholders (CABAN, King Baudouin Foundation, etc.) to discuss certain issues. This Working Group is making progress on issues, validating the labelling of Digital Public Spaces (DPS) and the dissemination of information within all these administrations.
In February 2021, the Government of the Brussels-Capital Region approved a Digital Appropriation Plan 2021-2024, thereby reaffirming its intention to continue actions to enhance the digital skills of the people of Brussels.
