The conference will focus on the digital economy and the digital single market in the EU as drivers of future innovation, competitiveness and growth. EU countries should exchange ideas on digitization policy development and facilitate joint initiatives. But are these opportunities fully utilized?

We will discuss prospects and challenges towards digitization initiatives within the EU in policy, technology, infrastructure and market contexts. Brainstorming and panel sessions combined with paper presentation sessions will identify and discuss best practices and the sharing of ideas.

Come and listen to international speakers representing academia, industry and government. The conference will be opened by a keynote from Lithuania’s Vice Minister of Economy, Elijus ─îivilis, and Professor Kim Normann Andersen from Copenhagen Business School

Participants will come from academia, businesses, digitization networks and government agencies. The participants of the conference will benefit from speakers and participants within and outside Europe.
