For its 9th Annual meeting, ‘Using Innovation to Disrupt: Creating a Sustainable Digital Ecosystem for Learners,’ the Groningen Declaration Network (GDN) will convene practitioners and supporters in India to share digitalization development and use cases, strategies, and tactics that are working; expand the number of new projects moving forward globally where capacity is lacking; and bring new technologies and methods to the fore.

What is GDN?

The Groningen Declaration Network's goal is a global, equitable, accessible and sustainable Digital Learner Data Portability environment.

GDN 2020: India, April 15-17, 2020 

Some major initiatives currently underway, such as the Digital India Initiative and the 5-I vision, aim to maximize the benefits of digital technologies for social benefits to the Indian population, making India an exciting place to hold the meeting. From its start, the GDN had a long-standing interest in anything to do with the development of India’s digital service provision, especially since the establishment of the Indian National Academic Depository (NAD) initiative and, more recently, DigiLocker, a paperless, authentic governance serving as India’s citizen wallet and thereby providing the kind of infrastructure supporting the GDN vision.

Share your vision

Share your best practice, pilot, or vision having to do with the technical interoperability or the business interoperability aspects that will make the sustainable portability and sharing of digital student data sets a reality.

Proposals coming from sectors such as credential evaluation and recognition (academic and professional); professional licensure; student funding and student loans; (im)migration; and SIS development are welcomed under the guiding principle that the GDN annual meeting program actively seeks diversity and the widest possible array of current business models and technologies. Stakeholder updates are emphatically welcomed.


More information about the 9th GDN Annual Meeting is coming soon, in the meantime SAVE THE DATES April 15-17, 2020.
