The overall goal of the GIP was to create and provide an Internet-based multimedia inventory of information regarding national and international projects, studies and other initiatives relevant to the promotion and the further development of knowledge and understanding of the information society. This goal will be achieved through the implementation of the following objectives:
- to act as an international point of reference for the provision of information that will assist at the national and international level in the promotion of the information society;
to establish a network for the free exchange of information about national and international initiatives relating to the information society (the "Electronic Forum");
- to promote understanding of the impact of information technology on the economy, industry and society as a whole;
- to foster international alliances and multinational projects and investment.
The GIP linked national and international lists of projects, studies, and other activities relevant to the promotion of the information society. This global point of reference aimed to add value to the data collections of the participating members by providing versatile common searching capabilities in various languages. The major objective of the GIP was to create a totally open resource of knowledge on ways to allow everyone to share in the information society. The project was open to participation by all countries, international institutions, non-governmental organizations, private sector initiatives, etc. that wish to develop a strategy for promoting the information society, and that wish to share their experience with others.
