To sum up, digital inclusion seems to be the most essential ingredient that is expected to change fundamentally prison & release education and bring up social thriving.

Readiness for employment

Easier access to the welfare system

Social reintegration and connectivity

Lifelong learning opportunities

Familiarization with digital services (e-health, IBAN, etc.)
