The opening of the seminar will be performed by the State Secretary for the Dutch Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations Raymond Knops. The seminar will be hosted by Logius, the digital government service provider of The Netherlands and member of Euritas, the European Association of Public IT Services Providers.

About the seminar
The rapidly changing and digitising society offers many new possibilities that can make life easier, but unfortunately not for everyone. A substantial group of citizens is not or hardly digitally savvy. Governments have to make sure that all different types of user groups are included so all citizens can fully participate in society. This is quite a challenge regarding digital services. The Logius seminar provides a great opportunity to gain insight in improving the usability and accessibilty of digital government services. eGovernment experts from different countries will share how they deal with this and discuss the challenges, solutions and lessons learned.
