A Fast Track to Success

 "For all of you who don’t want to reinvent the wheel."

Thanks to the different financing possibilities offered by the European Commission, a wide variety of good examples about an increased use of IT for better service, democracy and efficiency have been developed all around the European regions.

Now it is time for many more to take advantage of these areas of knowledge in order to speed up their own development process and avoid having to invent the wheel once more.

We within the PIKE project have chosen four good examples that we are now working on to spread in nine European regions in order for them to be implemented and of use to more people.  

We quite simply offer a short cut to success.

Working this way creates an added value for the participating regions, who avoid having to reinvent those wheels that already exist, as well as for Europe on a whole, since already invested money and recently acquired knowledge once again comes to good use.

Are you interested in a short cut to success? 

Read about our work, check out our good examples or please contact the coordinator for PIKE in your region.


 The Pike project is co-financed by:


The Interregional cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, financed by the European Union's Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the area of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention. EUR 302 million is available for project funding but, more than that, a wealth of knowledge and potential solutions are also on hand for regional policy-makers.
