The eTampere initiative is a five-year development project that seeks to promote the development of the Information Society through measures targeting the following focus areas: the availability of public online services to residents; the strengthening of the knowledge base of research and training; and the generation of businesses related to the Information Society. This paper is based on evaluations done by Nordregio and Euricur. In this paper the model of eTampere will be described, how it functions and what has been achieved so far. Also the new roles of Business, Government and University (BGU) will be described that will enhance social engineering and social capital. The challenges of these types of innovative and large scale knowledge society local programmes will be also discussed. Full Text at Springer, may require registration or fee
