The Mobile Vejle

The mobile phone is among the most powerful IT forms, which offers us more flexibility than we have ever seen before. It enables us to access information and learning materials, and receive guidance. Yet, this media form remains underexploited in today’s knowledge society.

Current developments indicate that more and more citizens will own mobile phones capable of using these different kinds of services: Vodafone CEO Vittorio Colao, expects that by 2013, more than 70% of the mobile phones sold in Europe will be smart phones.

For a municipality such as Vejle, the big question is how to approach this development and its potentials.The Mobile Vejle” network endeavours to find the answers to the question - and contribute to the vision of A Mobile Municipality, where all citizens have access to information, guidance and learning when and where they need it.

The network is composed of more than 40 institutions within the municipality, representing various disciplines. They cooperate in developing the vision and translate these into projects and seek funding for them. At present, new commercial enterprises are now being invited to participate.

"The Mobile Vejle" is concerned about all citizens, to help them enhance their opportunities for mobile information, guidance and learning in an everyday working and student life.
