DG Infso to become DG Connect

As of 1 July 2012, the Directorate General Information Society and Media (DG Infso) which is one of the European Commission Services involved in the PPP European Green Cars Initiative be known as the Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG Connect).
This was announced in early April. According to Robert Madelin, Director General of DG Infso, the new name better represents the range of topics where the DG are active, and the new structure better aligns the work of the DG with key EU policies for the coming decade: ensuring that digital technologies can help deliver the growth which the EU needs.
