National Open Digital Ecosystems

Online, 4-5.30 pm.

This webinar is organised by the IDFC Institute’s Data Governance Network (DGN), in partnership with Omidyar Network India and the Boston Consulting Group. The Internet Democracy Project is participating.

This event hopes to generate substantive feedback on the white paper put out by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) on the topic of National Open Digital Ecosystems (NODEs).

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) is working on building an enabling ecosystem to leverage digital platforms for transformative governance impact, through a citizen-centric approach. While National Open Digital Ecosystems (NODEs) have this potential, they raise important issues ranging from governance to user adoption. With the Ministry seeking input from experts on guiding principles and the governance and implementation of these systems, this event aims to bring all the relevant stakeholders to the table.

The event will have senior government officials from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) joining the discussion. The session will be moderated by, Venkatesh Hariharan, Senior Fellow at IDFC Institute.
