SCOOP4C workshop in Sofia at February 22th 2018 focusses on education and privacy issues of once-only

Fri, 2 Feb 2018

How could once-only in the education sector look like? How could we deal with the critical sides of the once-only principle, like privacy and trust issues?  

Those are questions we want to address during our workshop in Bulgarias capital Sofia at February 22th 2018. We want to know what you think how the once-only principle should be implemented and what your worries are so that we can take them into consideration. We also want to find out who are the important actors in Bulgaria we need to adress for the further implementation of the once-only principle.

During the afternoon, we want to think together with you on how we could use once-only to make the life of student easier. We will present best-practice cases in the education sector and discuss with you a future scenario we are working on right now.

You are very welcome to join us in that session!

We are inviting practitioners from public administrations working in that field, state agencies dealing with the OOP, public administrations, academia from local universities, academia working in the field, students, NGO in the privacy and trust sector and CIO´s to get your view on different aspects of once-only and the work of SCOOP4C.
