EuroDIG: Opening Statements by Stakeholder Groups

The opening session aimed to gather some of the key stakeholders in IG issues, mostly from governments. It was good that Georgios Kipouros from JEF had an opportunity to represent youth and its need for better IG and the issues that are relevant to young people first of all, such as privacy and data protection.

Basically, most of the IG issues were covered and the attitude of the presenters from the governmental agencies was rather positive and optimistic towards them, which means that… Continue
