“Wandering in vain around the counters is overcome with digitalization and networking of registers. In such a situation, the state institutions have no reason to ask the citizens for data that they already possess.”


Within the project “Increasing Civic Engagement in the Digital Agenda – ICEDA” which is co-founded by the European Union and implemented in 6 countries (North Macedonia, Serbia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Albania and Estonia), Metamorphosis Foundation organizes Dialogues for Digital Agenda. This time the topic is Digital Agenda for Citizens – Digitalization and digital transformation for more efficient administration, which will be held on June 28, 2022 from 11:00 – 12:30, through the ZOOM platform.

The event will consist of a brief presentation of the latest research conducted within the Digital Agenda Observatory in North Macedonia conducted by the Metamorphosis Foundation as part of the project, and will serve to develop a discussion on opportunities and future steps for more efficient digitalization and digital transformation with the citizens in the center.
