€4,800 for local digital innovation projects in Wicklow

Wicklow is set to benefit from €4,800 for a local digital innovation project, a Fine Gael TD has said.

Minister Doyle said the Programme is designed to support and encourage imaginative uses of technology by Wicklow County Council for the common good.

Minister Doyle said: “I very much welcome the funding for this excellent project in Wicklow.

Wicklow County Council will produce a series of informative videos to help members of the public with accessibility arrangements for County Buildings and other Municipal District Offices.

This ‘Wicklow Welcomes All – help to plan your visit’ initiative will take users through different aspects involved in visiting County Buildings and the process of accessing different services and information face-to-face.

“The response to the latest call for applications under the Digital Innovation Programme was particularly strong.

“The projects that were submitted bear testament to the level of creativity and innovation in Ireland’s communities and within our local authorities.

“These projects follow on from thirteen projects approved under the Digital Innovation Programme in 2018 and brings the value of funds granted under the scheme so far by my Fine Gael colleague Minister Michael Ring to more than €700,000.

“The potential future savings that will come from piloting these initiatives ahead of large scale rollout are significant, as are the immediate benefits for many people across Ireland.

“I would like to thank all of the local applicants for their hard work, diligence and creativity and we can expect another call for applications under the Digital Innovation Programme later this year,” Minister Doyle said
