This workshop is organised by the EaPConnect project in cooperation with the GÉANT Community programme and is open on a first-come-first-served basis to any interested parties from the Eastern Partnership NRENs and the wider GÉANT community.
Public Affairs is about the way in which all kinds of organisations engage in lobbying and in securing a good reputation with policy makers. In the world of policy making, organisations and groups with specific interests try to influence decisions to their favour. They may try to get an issue on the agenda, or prevent it if this threatens their interest. How do they do this, what strategies do they use, and with what effects?
This workshop introduces you to the world of public affairs. In the course of the workshop, we will narrow down how to make the tools of Public Affairs relevant to the needs of research and education professionals at the national and European level. This would focus on the greater sphere of ‘the Digital Agenda’ and understanding what such a concept means.
