We are a community of NGO, IT, and media organizations that use technology for better transparency, accountability, and governance in the region.
We work to create a space for exchange of ideas and best practices as well as to create new collaborations between like-minded stakeholders across borders and sectors.
We do it by:
– organizing international conferences where people can learn and network;
– holding workshops that address specific knowledge gaps within the community;
– developing cross-border solutions in thematic working groups;
– replicating and documenting successful technology solutions;
– creating practice oriented research and analysis;
TransparenCEE is an initiative started by ePaństwo Foundation (EPF) and TechSoup Europe thanks to Google and the U.S. Department of State. Learn more about us below.
