EuroDIG is out of office

The Secretariat is on holiday and will be back in office from January 11. We wish all of those who celebrate Christmas wonderful festivities, and all of those who don’t, a hopefully restful time!
This year has presented all of us with challenging circumstances. At EuroDIG, we are lucky that we could carry on with our activities and expand our horizon by doing so, operating under the motto “never waste a crisis”. We hope you will be back with us next year, too!
