Pilot project: Blogger accreditation
We announced the possibility of a pilot project for blogger accreditation to the EU Council in our post from the previous meeting of bloggers with the Hungarian Council Presidency.
On Friday, this was still hypothetical and now everything went much quicker than most expected; this afternoon those bloggers who participated in one of the first four meetings were invited to accredit for this week’s Competitiveness Council (Wednesday and Thursday)
Given the speed of developments, two of the Bloggingportal.eu editors will participate in the pilot this time, hoping to keep the doors open for many more bloggers and many more Councils to come. You can follow @europasionaria and @ronpatz on Twitter and on their blogs Europasionaria.eu and Polscieu.
Both will be able to attend tomorrow’s background briefing (which is off-the-record) and then have similar access to the Council as journalists have on Wednesday on Thursday.
More to follow here, on Twitter and on the blogs. Stay tuned!
