- Hungary's new portal system called
Electronic Hungary (URL: www.e-mo.hu
) was on 15th November. The
system will host the common information and communication centre of
four Hungarian intelligent regions, five intelligent counties, five
intelligent smaller regions and more intelligent villages. Regional
information society development strategies and operational programmes
have already been prepared for two thirds of the Hungarian counties.
The e-mo portal will be introduced at 10 a.m. on 21st November
2001, at an international press conference in Pallas Páholy,
Budapest. On the e-mo portal, industrial parks, clusters, e-public
service, e-economy, intelligent civil societies, the youth, social
welfare issues and other fields of activity will also have their own
portals. This portal system will also host Central Europe and
Hungary's first on-line Knowledge Department Store, where, by the
middle of 2002, the knowledge material of about 500 scientists,
developers and inventors will be on sale. Each professional featuring
in the Knowledge Department Store will have the chance to open their
own home page during the coming weeks.
An additional service, to be launched in January 2002, will be the
Marketplace of Inventions. An English language version of the e-mo
portal is being developed and is to be introduced gradually. It will
introduce the European regions, the information society strategies of
the EU, and the European information strategy projects. The e-mo
portal system is supported by Incopark Consortium, which contributes
to the development of technology parks, as well as Knowledge Valley
(Tudásvölgy) virtual company, which was established to provide
intelligent content service.
The professional co-ordinator of the portal system is the
Institute for Strategic Research Kht., which in December 2000 gained
financial support from MEH Informatics Commission (Hungarian
Communication Authority) for setting up the e-mo portal and Knowledge
The portal developer and operator of e-mo is Offers Hungary Ltd.
The editorial office of e-mo is in Budaörs, in the Industrial and
Technology Park, since they are co-operating to turn it into a
science park. In the long run, the portal wants to become Hungary's
best-known and most widely used on-line medium of information society
development and the presentation of new knowledge. At the same time,
it wishes to keep an e-gate open towards the European Union.
