ERNACT or the European Regions Network for the Application of Communications Technology is a European network focused on realising the benefits of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to accelerate development of the Digital Agenda within the ERNACT regions.

The Derry City and Strabane District Council is a partner within ERNACT. We work with the other partners to progress the digital agenda within our area. All partners have access to a network of like-minded regions throughout the European Union, where a virtuous cycle of ICT project development, innovation and sharing of best practice takes place.

Since 2011, the ERNACT regions have jointly developed and secured a number of new projects in the areas of electronic public services, transfer of best practice in ICT energy efficiency and broadband, interactive location aware tourism services, digital media and broadband models for rural areas.

The network has commenced planning a new series of trans-regional Digital Agenda projects to support its regions’ Smart Specialisation topics.
