Happy Birthday, CGITC!

December is a special month for our Center. This year the Center for Global IT-Cooperation is celebrating its first birthday. During our first year we have already managed to achieve considerable success!

Happy Birthday, CGITC!

The Youth Russian Internet Governance Forum (Youth RIGF) was our first major event. The Forum was attended by 200 people in person, and more than 5000 joined the online broadcast of the Forum. In the past year the CGITC organized 10 events including a series of round tables with large IT companies.

We joined more than 70 national and international IT events. We have been a part of such global platforms as the UN Internet Governance Forum (IGF), the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), the UN High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF), the international conference on artificial intelligence and data analysis AI Journey and others. 

The CGITC has also published several scientific and analytical articles, conducted several studies: “Overview of the world experience in the sphere of global digital platforms activity regulation in national jurisdictions”, “Improving data management models. Stimulating the exchange of data between the public sector and key market participants", "How international ICT cooperation can contribute to UN SDGS", etc.

In August 2021 we joined the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in its development sector. The CGITC also participated in the development of the Charter "Digital Ethics of Childhood" together with the Alliance for the Protection of Children in the Digital Environment.

The year was eventful and productive! The Center would like to thank our partners and friends for being with us all this year. It's a great start! We will keep up doing the interesting work!
