July update – Digital Agenda for Europe goes local

Just finished another very busy month building up to and then following up on the Digital Agenda for Europe Assembly in Brussels on June 16th and 17th, read all about it here: http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/digital-agenda/daa/index_en.htm. More than 1,000 people from across the EU and beyond were involved in the two days of intensive discussion and debate. One of the key results was the commitment to get local initiatives going where cities and regions developed their own ‘Local Digital Agenda’, see the results from Workshop 24 on this. Later this year we’ll be starting a refresh on the Manchester Digital Strategy and ensuring that this is a genuinely ‘Local Digital Agenda’ for Manchester linking forward to the evolving Digital Agenda for Europe. There’s also more on the excellent Local2020 website developed by our colleagues at Clicks and Links. More on the MDDA website over the coming months.
