As part of the DEEP-linking Youth project (funded under the Erasmus+ programme) a consortium of seven European partners are launching the so-called Digital Dashboard – an e-platform built to listen and understand what opinions young people are voicing online.

The platform is being tested on a specific issue: youth mobility programmes in Europe, mainly the Erasmus programme. The goal is to understand how young people’s opinions can feed into EU policy-making.

Join us to find out what the Digital Dashboard is capturing in the digital space and discover how we can use these opinions to feed into the EU policy-making process. You will have the chance to see how the platform was built, test it out and give your feedback on it.
