  • Promote information exchange, dialogue and communication among artists, scientists and technicians from different geo-cultural regions, especially enabling developing countries to develop their own approaches and practices in various disciplines and fields of knowledge connected to media arts;

  • Support existing institutions and networks throughout the world in the transfer of knowledge;

  • Encourage the use of electronic software among the youth for electronic communication and creation.
