Thanks, Sheetal for taking a lead on this. Having followed the process so
far, our biggest input into the Digital Cooperation/TechEnvoy initiative
may actually be in the working methods itself. While the multi-stakeholder
principle is "kind of accepted", the daily implementation of it leaves much
to be desired.
I think it is important that we entrench an open, inclusive,
dialogue-oriented approach in the DigiCoop
Will definitely join the call
