TEAC16 Report Project Lightning Talks Finally, in Project Lightning Talks we wanted to offer delegates the opportunity to learn about projects from members of Telecentre Europe. This was not (only) about brilliant project results, but about the learning that each presenter had gained from delivering their project. The intention was to share what went wrong, what worked well, and what they had learned from it. All presenters had to answer five questions in only five minutes, with either five or ten slides: - What was/is your project about? - What social impact has it made? - What would you change? - What would you keep the same? - What have you learned? The projects and presenters were: 1. I-LINC – Bastian Pelka, Technical University Dortmund; Iva Walterova, Telecentre Europe 2. Generation 0101 – Zagorka Prce Veseli, Centre of Technical Culture Rijeka 3. Social Hackathon Umbria 2016 – Altheo Valentini, Associazione Centro Studi Città di Foligno 4. Online4EDU – Nenja Wolbers, Stiftung Digitale Chancen 5. ABC digitale – Claudia Iormetti, Open Group 6. Digikriebels – Eveline Versluys, Digipolis The six presentations are available here. The Telecentre Europe and I-LINC Awards ceremony The exquisite Pacification Room of Ghent City Hall hosted the finalists and winners of the 2016 Telecentre Europe and I-LINC Awards. The Awards Ceremony marked the culmination of the conference and celebrated organizations and individuals who enable people to get to grips with technology. The guests were welcomed by Mayor of Ghent Daniël Termont, who talked about the value of including all members of society in this digital era and the valuable work and impact of Digipolis, the TEAC16 host organization. In 2016, Telecentre Europe Awards Competition was held for the 4th time, this year together with the I-LINC project to recognize individuals and organizations around Europe who work daily with communities to empower citizens through technology. Telecentre Europe and I-LINC Awards acknowledge their innovation, dedication and the inspiring role they play to many people.
