While digital divide and digital literacy have entered into common use the term digital inclusion is still quite new. The term describes a number of interrelated concepts, such as widening access to digital technology and services, the acquisition of digital competencies and literacies necessary to make smart use of technologies and services, empowering people in using technology for both, self-determined life and as means to participate in society.

The Erasmus+ strategic partnership UPTAKE ICT is promoting actions, at national and international scale with the purpose of strengthening digital inclusion through building contents, digital instruments and analyzing the impact of ICT in a global world.
