The aims of Ponet project

The main aim is the creation of a telematic network (based on Internet technology), for the circulation of information and the development of growing forms of communication between organizations and citizens, stimulating the enhancement of services to the city of Prato.
The widespread proliferation of information and telematics will enable access to data banks from pre-established offices and public places located throughout the territory

The general feasibility study for the project was developed by technicians from the Municipality of Prato together with PIN s.c.r.l. (Didactic and Scientific Services for the University of Florence - Prato Section) who were entrusted with a specific task to carry out.

The civic network presents itself as a logical and coordinated dissemination of information and services as offered by the administrations involved and is open to participation, by signing the letter of agreement, to any public organisation working in the territory of Prato and its province.
