open call photo Are you involved in political accountability projects and want to learn more about the usage of new technologies in this field?

Or somebody who connects those two worlds and wants to meet similar people and learn more about what is happening around the world, in particular in Southeast Europe?

We’re also inviting everybody who works in the intersection of activism, political accountability and new technologies in SEE to submit a proposal for a short (up to 15 min) presentation about their work in the field. If you’re an activist developing a project related to the use of new technologies in fields of government accountability monitoring and/or open data, or if you want to share a story about a success of technology-related project(s) of civil society, or about the use of new technologies for advocacy or monitoring different branches of government — we would love to have you on the stage and get to know more about your experiences.

You can learn more about the submission of presentations from here: POINT 4.0 open call invitation.

The deadline for both submissions is March 31st. After that we will publish the list of accepted proposals and fellowship requests and we will contact all the submitters.
