Integration of eGovernment and Wireless Broadband good practices into the Convergence and Regional Competitiveness and Employment policies of all the participating regions. In order to do so ALL 9 participating regions will develop an Action Plan to transfer the good practices into the mainstream Structural Funds programmes. Apart from project coordination and dissemination, PIKE's main activities will consist of Documenting and presenting the good practices, transferring the good practices  and ensuring implementation under the regional OPs (Local workshops, presentations to regional OP Monitoring Committees, regional Action Plan launches).
