Each year, stakeholder representatives inlcuding from over 100 organisations who are signatories to the Groningen Declaration gather at the GDN Annual Meeting to share, learn and lead discussion on developing business and technical platforms to improve the data from learning experiences and the credentials attained via formal and informal learning environments. With the advent of the new hybrid event design, our audience continues to grow with over 200 delegates attending in person or virtually in 2021.

In 2022 the 11th Annual Meeting will take place on 12-14 October and be delivered in a hybrid format: in person (in the birthplace of the GDN, the beautiful city of Groningen, The Netherlands and virtually (online).   

The themes of the 2022 meeting are “Learner Centricity – Interoperability – Lifelong Learning” which highlights the interdependence of three key issues that have to be met to make digital learner data portability a global reality.  That is, a focus on the pivotal role of learner centricity as starting point, requiring interoperability so as to ensure seamless learners’ access to their data, thus enabling the build-up and sharing of learner portfolios throughout their lives.
