Knowledge Sharing

Friday 16 November 2018 - 09h00 > 16h00

Ateliers des Tanneurs – Rue des Tanneurs, Brussels

On the 16th of November 2018, Enabel organises a full day with knowledge sharing and learning activities, to support Belgian and European development actors, and valorise the Digital for Development accomplishments of the past years. 

D4D accomplishment talks

From 09h30 to 12h00, succesful D4D projects will present the results and impact they were able to achieve through digital technologies, and discuss which elements played a keyrole in achieving these promising results.

D4D in-depth talks

From 13h00 to 16h00 practitioners and digital experts will explain in detail specific digital technologies (how and what for), such as e-learning, mobile money; big data, etc.. The talks will discuss in depth both the opportunities and limitations of each to provide a nuanced understanding. There will also be ample time to ask questions and consult with the experts to decide whether this technology could respond to your needs (or not).



Sessions will be organised in parallel in French or in English. Registered participants will be invited to indicate the session of their preference beforehand.

The programme might be subject to change.
