In preparation for the session we prepared a short survey that will help us tailoring the session and the strategy

Looking forward to seeing you in Singapore!



The second ICANN Brussels briefing ended this morning at the Brussels Reinassance Hotel.  Around 40 stakeholders were able to join and engage in a good discussion on a number of issues and laying the ground for a good start in 2014. 

 On behalf of the ICANN Brussels team we do apologize for the remote participants, which were let off just few minutes after the meeting started. Unfortunately the hotel network went down and despite all the efforts of our IT staff in the room even basic emails didn't work. 

We will keep you posted on the Survey launch for the ICANN Engagement Strategy for Europe, in just few weeks stay tuned and keep engaging!

As part of the global ICANN Strategy initiative, ICANN is reaching out to Europe region to involve all stakeholders in the bottom-up multistakeholder process of ICANN. The strategy for Europe aims at gathering the inputs from the region and ensuring that the specific needs of stakeholders are fully taken in consideration and that their inputs shape the work and development of ICANN. 

To design a strategy for the region ICANN counts on the input and participation of all stakeholders. Aware of the specific complexity of the region and the multiple challenges (from geographic definition to issues identification) the approach followed is of a broad and open consultation.

Under the coordination of the ICANN Brussels office a series of event related to the building of the strategy have been organized. 

On June 25 the first ICANN Brussels briefing was organized, to reach out to the large Brussels based community and inform on the most recent developments: 

The Brussels briefing provided the basis to organize at the Durban 47 ICANN meeting an open informal consultation gathered a numbered of stakeholder for a first discussion focused on the Strategy:

Feedback from the session provided valuable indications on the needs and structure for the Strategy, as from Centr  centr-icann_european_strategy.pdf and the .EU registry http://www.centr.org/article/icann-durban-takes-bow-embryonic-european-strategy


Further presentations of the Strategy have been given at several events including the RIPE 67 Meeting in Athens (October 2013 RIPE 67 - ATHENS .pptx) and at the Centr General Assembly in Brussels. 

As an ongoing process ICANN Brussels looks forward to including more inputs and further defining the structure, reach, indicators and milestones of the Strategy, all interested stakeholders are invited to join the Strategy for Europe session at the coming ICANN 48 Buenos Aires.

  1. Regarding the Regional Strategy for Europe. I was unable to attend Brussels. Can you provide the presentation notes or brief document overview to acompany the presentation.  It is very dificult to pick up information from a ppt deck alone.  I am particularly intersted in the Survey and Slide 11 - Next steps. Thanks..
