This event is organised to promote eParticipation in Europe. It will bring public servants, practitioners, politicians, representatives of grass-roots organisations and academics together to share their knowledge and to kick-start new ideas and initiatives. The event will be attended by a broad spectrum of eParticipation actors and will feature a range of high-level speakers from political bodies, major corporations, and universities. The Pan-European eParticipation Network (PEP-NET) is a Commission-funded project that promotes co-operation between European organisations involved in eParticipation. The network has over 50 members and has been active during the past three years. The event will be hosted by the City of Hamburg.
