The effects of digitalisation on the economy, politics and daily life have long been European. With re:connecting EUROPE, we want to promote the development of a Europe-wide network of creative industries. We look forward to new perspectives on our networked world! So join in the conversation: in Berlin, Dublin, Thessaloniki and Katowice!
re:publica is one of the largest and most exciting conferences about digital culture in the world. Since its foundation in 2007, it has grown from a cosy blogger meeting with into a wide-ranging ‘society conference’, with 9,000 visitors. Representatives of digital culture share their knowledge and decision-making tools and discuss the future of the information society. Here they can mingle with activists, scientists, hackers, entrepreneurs, NGOs, journalists, social media and marketing experts, and many others. This fosters innovation and creates synergies between net politics, online marketing, network technology, digital society and (pop) culture. What is more, around 46 percent of re:publica speakers are female – far more than at many other similar events.
