Call for Papers
Submission Deadline: 05/30/2013
The European Commission is inviting all interested persons to join in the online engagement platform of the Digital Agenda for Europe (DAE) to discuss in the online groups, contribute to the Digital Agenda Assembly, and help to shape the mid-term review of the DAE.
The Online Engagement Platform of the DAE is an online space for discussion and peer-to-peer collaboration to prepare the Digital Agenda Assembly 2012 (DAA12 - to be held on 21-22 June in Brussels) as well as the review of the DAE, planned for adoption in October 2012. Such a space was the most requested feature in the feedback received following the Digital Agenda Assembly 2011.
The Platform features 10 discussion groups on key DAE topics, most of which correspond to workshops that will be held at DAA12 (groups 1 to 8) plus 2 other ones (groups 9 and 'other issues'). Each discussion is animated by a moderator and has a dedicated (hash)tag.
Participants can join the group(s) they you are interested in and react to the questions from the moderator or raise other issues themselves. In addition, they can post contributions in other online forums, using the relevant tag so the contributions can be aggregated in the 'tagosphere' section of each discussion group in the DAE online engagement platform.
There are at least four reasons for interested people to contribute:
This platform is a temporary online space that complements the DAE's official website. It contains much information on the DAE (managed by the Directorate-General for Information Society and Media of the European Commission) as well as other European Commission efforts to promote and implement the DAE.
