DigiGov, the only network dedicated to communicators in public institutions in Romania, was launched in 2014, in order to facilitate interaction between institutions, communication departments and people, as well as an exchange of experience regarding online communication. DigiGov includes members from both central and local institutions, as well representations in Romania of international institutions and diplomatic missions.
The DigiGov meetings are held on a monthly basis, each being organized in partnership with an institution that provides the venue for the event. Moreover, all meetings are dedicated to a specific topic and feature high-level guest speakers either from Romania or abroad, the latter joining the sessions online. Thus, DigiGov members have the opportunity to interact with top professionals and discover useful, interesting and up-to-date information, as well as to build connections and close relations with fellow colleagues.
Among the active supporters of the DigiGov network are the Department of Online Services and Design at the Cabinet of the Prime Minister of Romania, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Romania, the Ministry of Defence, the Ministry of Information Society and the British Embassy in Romania.
The DigiGov meetings were the first events in Romania to approach the subject of digital diplomacy and one of the main venues to discuss the implications of the National Strategy for the Digital Agenda – 2020 adopted by the Romanian Government in 2015.
