EIT Digital webinar: "Reopen society using physical COVID-19 contact tracing tokens"

Watch the replay

Contact tracing experts, customers, policy makers and entrepreneurs will discuss how physical COVID-19 contact tracing tokens can be used in targeted use cases to quickly react to local outbreaks.

EIT Digital is organizing on April 28 at 12 noon CET the "Reopen society using physical COVID-19 contact tracing tokens" webinar.

Despite the vaccination, contact tracing - the process of warning the individuals that they have previously been exposed to a COVID-19-infected person - is essential in tracking and breaking the chains of transmission of the virus.

As an alternative to the smartphone-based contact tracing apps, since mid-2020, EIT Digital has supported European entrepreneurial teams developing token-based tracing systems in the Nordics, Benelux, Italy, UK, and Hungary. These targeted European solutions have been piloted at construction sites, stadiums, schools and offices.

In this 1-hour webinar, EIT Digital brings together experts in contact tracing, representatives from the five supported entrepreneurial teams and policy makers from all over Europe, to discuss how token-based contact tracing systems could help Europe to reopen the society. 

Join the EIT Digital "Reopen society using physical COVID-19 contact tracing tokens" webinar on April 28 at 12 noon CET, and learn all about this new European technology!
