Improving the Digital Agenda Assembly

We’ve just had an exciting Digital Agenda Assembly, with great participation online and offline (http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/digital-agenda/daa/index_en.htm) and now it will be very useful to receive your feedback on how to improve this kind of event in future, make it more relevant and engaging. This forum aims at gathering comments and suggestions on the Digital Assembly, as a complement to feedback collected through individual assessment forms.

In particular your feedback is sought on:

- EVENT PREPARATION (programme, online interaction, registrations, other): feedback on DAA 2011 and recommendations for the future

- EVENT ITSELF (plenary and workshop sessions, networking and side activities, other): feedback on DAA 2011 and recommendations for the future

- FOLLOW-UP to the event (exploitation of shared information, elaboration of proposals and commitments made, link to future policy work around the digital agenda for Europe, other): recommendations for the future

Please post suggestions for improvement, comment and rate other people suggestions.

How can we improve the Digital Agenda Assembly?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. The venue had good and bad points

    The venue was spectacular and provided an appropriate backdrop to the event. However, it was uncomfortably hot, especially for an event that went on for a number of hours each day. some of the workshop rooms were very uncomfortable and didn't facilitate the kind of discussion that was needed.

      • Comprehension by journalist

        Comprehensions should be made by journalists because otherwise the results get prepared in advance which makes the whole workshop dull.

        • Use tools like Google Moderator to identify key issues to be addressed

          Some workshops like #daa11economy have very effectively used Google Moderator to identify key issues to be discussed. It would be even better if an open tool was used.

            • Improve registration forms adding more options

              It's rare to see registration forms asking for things such as dietary or accessibility requirements. Please, add these fields to the registration form so the organizers could prepare for this well in advance and attendants don't need to look for someone in the organization and remind them about their special requirements. EC events must be fully inclusive.

              • Confirmation of places at the event

                There was a long time delay in confirming places at the event. It would have helped me to know sooner because of planning other activities around those dates. Other wise the registration process worked well.
