    Interview of a French PIC’s coordinator: the PIC’s action towards vulnerable groups & the training solutions for e-facilitators

    December 5th, 2011

    Interview with Régine Roué, manager of an EPM (Espace Public Multimédia – Public Internet Centre) of Brest, Brittany, France

    Tuesday 25th October

    We got in touch with Ms Régine Roué, coordinator of the PIC situated in Kérourien, a suburb quarter of Brest, which is considered by the local government as an “urban sensitive area”[1] of Brest, notably because of its high rate of unemployment.

    Since 2003, Régine invests lots of energy welcoming people of her quarter in the online centre, and draws bridges with local services to improve people’s accompaniment.

    Active in her neighborhood as well as outside thanks to partnership projects set up with other PICs and local services, she feels also concerned by issues of digital intermediaries, and by the role of e-facilitators in the accompaniment of vulnerable groups. In fact, Régine took part in the experimentation of the VET4e-I pilot online training that occurred in last spring 2011, led within the project’s experimentation phase, and which purpose was notably to highlight the role of e-facilitators for social inclusion.
