ABOUT THE DIGITAL
UNCONFERENCE

Organiser: Digital National Alliance (DNA)
Date: October, 26th
Time: 9.00 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Venue: Sofia Tech Park

Days before the start of 2018 Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the EU, DNA will gather leading policymakers, disruptive technology companies and stakeholders in the digital ecosystem to brainstorm how Europe can build a digital society fit for the future.
The Unconference, unlike the traditional conferences, is a participant-driven format which stimulates active participation of all the attendants rather than sticking to the specific roles of moderators and speakers. The expected outcome of the unconference sessions is to transform the collective knowledge into brief extracts from all the panels which will be shared with the EU Commission.
With technological change occurring across Europe and worldwide it is time for the builders of ideas to return.

Simultaneous translation will be available during the whole event.
