rpDUB in de woorden van de organisatie:
Our first international event went spectacularly. On 20 October 2016, more than 200 participants from Ireland, Germany and other countries converged on re:publica Dublin. There they attended exciting sessions on three stages and discussed some of the most important topics of the digital society with our 33 speakers.
Our first event outside of Germany reminded us of our very first re:publica in Berlin. There was a lot of room for discussion and great exchanges with the Irish digital community. re:publica is more than an annual event – it’s a network and an attitude.
We chose to feature re:publica Dublin in three unique locations: the historic Smock Alley Theatre, the lively Generator Hostel, and the cozy Merchant’s Arch Pub. All locations provided numerous talks and discussion rounds on topics such as surveillance, data protection, hate speech, and FinTech.
