The Annual Groningen Declaration Network Meeting
The annual meeting is the main event of the Groningen Declaration Network. It is the one event where all stakeholders in the Digital Student Data Ecosystem can meet, network, exchange information and showcase ongoing pilots and systems developments.
The first five annual meetings, from the inaugural meeting in Groningen until the fifth annual meeting in Cape Town – see overview below – ran on a closed purse basis. Since the incorporation in 2016, the GDN runs its operations on a sustainable basis. Starting 2017, registration fees have been introduced to cover conference organization costs, with sizeable additional funds coming from sponsors and from our networks participants, for which we are very grateful.
