From 10th to 12th February 2008, the Development Cooperation 2.0: II International Meeting on ICT for Development Cooperation will take place in Gijón, Spain.
Last year’s edition featured a interesting collection of international speakers from the Development Cooperation and the Information Society world that rarely come together. This year’s pool of speakers lists an equally impressive range of personalities from which to learn — and debate with: Stéphane Boyera, Ken Banks, Ana Moreno, Vikas Nath, John Dryden, Eduardo Sánchez, Alexander Widmer, Carolina Figueres, Merryl Ford and Najat Rochdi.
The central topic of the conference will be Innovation in ICT for Human Development, with threethree associated thematic axis, namely:
- ICT and Quality in Development Cooperation
- ICT and Mobility for Development
- Development Cooperation Networks
Being interested in ICT4D and Development Cooperation, this is one of the two events taking place in Spain that you dont want to miss — the other one being e-STAS: Symposium de las Tecnologías para la Acción Social (more information to come).
