On Monday 22 October 2018 at 14h00, the Interreg Europe Policy Learning Platform will organise an online discussion on ‘Enabling the digital transformation. Regional business support ecosystems.’ Join us by registering here. 

The webinar will provide an overview of the approaches followed by different Interreg Europe projects. Policy Learning Platform experts and representatives of projects will discuss the challenges, successes and lessons learnt. While the content presents Interreg Europe's projects, participants not related to the projects are very welcome to join. 

Digital transformation

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. 

The transformation process must be integrated into every aspect of the company. It should be supported by equally important amendments in culture, leadership, skills and processes. SMEs should pro-actively rethink their core businesses to adapt to the challenges. The successful implementation of the digital transformation on a broad scale requires a large commitment and involvement of multiple stakeholders on the regional and local level.

This online discussion aims to bring together the experience gained by different Interreg Europe partnerships, and will give you the possibility to look beyond the horizon of your own project and prepare the ground for future exchanges across project consortia.
