This interactive webinar will allow participants to:
- get to know about different approaches to support the digital transformation in SMEs,

While the content is related to the Interreg Europe projects, participants not related to these projects are also very welcome to join.
Digital transformation is a broad concept encompassing the changes induced by the increased availability and use of digital technologies in all kind of activities. For businesses it implies that existing or emerging digital technologies contribute to change their business models, their products or services and the way they are manufactured and delivered, as well as the necessary skills to remain competitive in fast changing competitive environments.
