VOICE event: Data collection and social media - innovation or challenge for humanitarian aid?
Panel discussion :
Data collection and social media
– innovation or challenge for humanitarians?
VOICE is organising an event to bring together different actors to discuss data and the use of new technologies and social media in humanitarian action. While this undoubtedly presents many opportunities for data collection and innovation in the humanitarian sector, it also brings some challenges and questions to be addressed. This event is aimed at VOICE members and EU humanitarian stakeholders and will be followed by a networking reception.
Join us on Monday 15 May (18:00 – 21:00) at L42, Rue de la Loi 42, 1000-Brussels.

The reception to follow is an opportunity for VOICE members and EU humanitarian stakeholders to meet and network.
VOICE looks forward to seeing many of you there.
