Online registration is closed, but don't worry! If you forgot to register for EuroDIG, you can still register onsite prior to the workshop. Please bring your passport or ID with you. If you are already registered you can just attend as normal. 


GIPO's Observatory Tool has been launched in 2016 after a one-year process of collaboration  and consultations with the Internet Governance community. During the open workshop, new developments in the Global Internet Policy Observatory will be presented and stakeholders will be invited to exchange views and ideas on the future of GIPO´s Observatory Tool.


The discussion will start with the presentation from GIPO´s Advisory Group that will share the conclusions from the previous Roundtable on “GIPO contribution to multistakeholderism in Internet governance”. After that, GIPO´s Observatory Tool will be presented together with real life examples of usage. Different levels of collaboration and cross-fertilization among other Observatories will also be presented.


Participants will be invited to join the discussion on future collaboration, and develop answers to the following questions:

  1. How can GIPO´s Observatory Tool  be further improved?

  2. How can GIPO increase its outreach beyond the usual suspects and other observatory platforms?

  3. How can GIPO help increase synergies among IG observatories this year?

  4. What's the way forward for the GIPO initiative - what are the possibilities of joint ownership?
