23 May 2019 | Berlin
EIT Digital invites entrepreneurs, industry representatives, engineers and researchers to a Networking Event. We will discuss industry needs, perspectives, and technological solutions in the field of Digital Tech with a special focus on cyber security and data privacy.
EIT Digital’s focus area Digital Tech addresses the topic how core technologies, providing secure, robust, responsive and intelligent communications, invent the digital future. Core digital technologies are the basis of our economy’s and society’s deep digital transformation. Europe needs to stay in the lead in areas where it is currently strong (networks, 5G, IoT), adopt a leadership role in digital’s next platform revolution (artificial intelligence) and establish broad trust in digital (cybersecurity, privacy).
Join us and discuss how AI and data enhance security and privacy in the digital world. Learn how new digital solutions powered with AI can help you keep your assets secure from external threats and how you can develop your business while respecting employee or customer privacy and GDPR compliance.
The afternoon will be enriched by keynotes from top experts in the field providing you with the latest insight on tech developments. Furthermore, participants will have the chance to present their innovation projects in short pitches to the audience to engage potential new partners.
