Shape EuroDIG’s 2023 Main Topics

During the Public Planning Meeting earlier this month, the suggestion was taken up to make a slight change to the workflow of Org Teams, who are shaping the sessions at EuroDIG. Org Teams remain open to everyone, but will start by exchanging on the Main Topic before forming smaller groups for specific sessions to increase cohesion and foster exchange.

You can find out more and register here.

The three Main Topics and corresponding meeting dates are:

Impact of the war: 2nd March, 14:00-15:30 CET

Digital platforms: 2nd March, 15:30-17:00 CET

Internet fragmentation: 3rd March, 14:30-16:00 CET

If any or all of these spark your interest and you want to contribute, visit
