EUNIS is partnering with 1EdTech and NTNU to deliver two linked events exploring the development of an edtech ecosystem to meet European needs. The European Leadership Summit on 3 – 4 October is a free event open to all. The keynotes and panel discussions will provide background context and perspectives to inform a working Think Tank the following week.
During the Think Tank (hosted by NTNU Brussels office) invited representatives of European organisations will meet to develop a white paper and action plan concerning the European digital infrastructure for education.
If you would like to get involved, you are welcome to join the three online sessions (on 3 October, from 13.00 to 14.30 CET ) where we talk about trust and public values in relation to the digital ecosystem. Your comments and questions will be fed into the Think Tank discussions.
