The event is foreseen as a half-day afternoon conference followed by a networking cocktail and will be hosted by two Members of the European Parliament: György Schöpflin (EPP, Hungary) and Marju Lauristin (S&D, Estonia). The event organisers are expecting app. 100 guests from across Europe. The half-day conference consists of two panels: The role of ICT in active citizenship, moderated by MEP Schöpflin (EPP, Hungary), and Digital literacy, access and provision of e-services, moderated by MEP Lauristin (S&D, Estonia).
