Open Government Partnership Regional Meeting for Europe 8-9 May 2014


The Open Government Partnership (OGP) Regional Meeting for Europe will take
place in *Dublin on 8-9 May 2014.*

This event is open to official delegates from European countries currently
participating or considering future participation in the OGP,
representatives of civil society and non-governmental organisations,
representatives of international, regional and multilateral organisations,
the business community, and the academic community. This event is also open
to media.

The event comes at an important time for OGP in Europe. Over 20 countries
from the region are currently developing new open government reform
commitments as part of their OGP Action Plans. The Dublin meeting provides
an exciting opportunity for Ministers, officials and civil society to
exchange ideas on how to make the new OGP Action Plans ambitious, relevant
and action orientated.

Participants are responsible for bearing the costs of flights and
accommodation and no funding is available from the Irish Government in this
regard. Tea, coffee and buffet lunches will be provided at the conference
venue on both days.

The conference, hosted by the Department of Public Expenditure and
will be a 2-day event consisting of plenary and working group/break-out
sessions, with a balance of civil society representatives and government
officials from across Europe.   The Agenda will be made available in due

*Further information on registration will issue shortly.* If the event is
over-subscribed a transparent selection process will take place. Please
note that some delegates may require a visa for entry to Ireland and visa
applications should be submitted at least 6-8 weeks in advance of travel to
