About this webinar

In 2022 the covid-19 pandemic will continue to impact our lives in many ways. This means that we will continue to see an accelerated rate of digitization and virtualization of business and society.

However, as we move into a new year, the need for sustainability, ever-increasing data volumes, and increasing compute and network speeds will begin to regain their status as the most important drivers of digital transformation.

Gartner found that those organizations that successfully enable business technologists are 2.6x more likely to accelerate digital business outcomes. However, to do so, they will need the right tools at their disposal.

In this webinar, we will talk about how European scientific institution – EDI – can help by leading the way to innovations, sustainability, and smart digitalization. We will give a glimpse into solutions that already exist and can be implemented in construction, transportation, sports, and accelerate computer vision.

We will introduce DIH-WORLD – a Digital Innovation Hub – that can boost these innovations thanks to European funding. Last but not least, we will draw an action plan on what to do in order to receive funding and start your digitalization journey with the scientific institution.
