Going Local gives participants the opportunity to have a say in the development of the European Digital Single Market (DSM) strategy and for us to get a better understanding of national and local digital realities. In 2013, Going Local aimed at raising awareness of the Digital Agenda for Europe. Following positive feedback on the past rounds, events focusing on the DSM Strategy are in progress for this year
Senior European Commission staff members organise the Going Local events together with the Commission Representation in your country and the Digital Champion. Sometimes Commissioners working with aspects of the Digital Single Market are also involved.
