In 2004, the BMI organized a lot of events - including very interesting meetings with people of the international Prelude project.

Regional informatics in the Vysocina Region
The end of year brings the opportunity to look back at the results of the past initiatives. Vysocina Region does not belong to big or economic strong regions of the Czech Republic but has a great vision - to become one of the most important “information” regions. That is one of the reasons of the Vysocina participation in the Prelude project.

The „final“ in Broumov was the first event organized in the frame of the Marathon campaign, where people of two nations (Czech and Polish) met at the same place to dispute questions of European democracy with Franck Biancheri.
Vysocina launching conference of four regions
Czech regional partner of the Prelude project the Vysocina Region recognises that after joining of the European Union, national borders between the Czech Republic and Austria disappear. How the change will be reflected in minds of people and how to dissolve the borders in behaviour of institutions on the both sides of the border will be the core question of the coming conference. Leaders of the Vysocina Region assume the necessity of intensification of mutual contacts and better understanding of each other in the process of European accession.
