Driving digital transformation - one industry at a time! In the spotlight: Supply Chain Management and Logistics

Digitrends/Logistics aims at fostering discussion among corporates, research institutions and SMEs on the challanges of driving digital transformation in the field of logistics and supply chain management. The event will feature high-level keynotes from industry greats offering a glimpse of the experience, anticipation and challenges of going digital.

Joining the discussion we also invited research institutions, EIT Digital partners, startups, scaleups and other tech providers to highlight some of the solutions already in existence or in the making.
