Thematic Workshop on "Mastering the Digital Transformation of Business Support"


Date: 27 November 2019
Location: Brussels, Belgium

The Policy Learning Platform organises a thematic workshop on 'Mastering the digital transformation of business support' on 27 November 2019.

During this one-day workshop our SME competitiveness thematic experts, Rene T├Ánnisson and Luc Schmerber, will focus on the digital transformation of the administration and business support organisations.

Digitalisation has often been called the 'fourth industrial revolution'. The digital transformation of the European economy and public sector is of vital importance to ensure Europe's competitive advantage in the global economy and to deliver growth and jobs:

  • Completing the digital single market could raise EU GDP by at least 4%, or around EUR 520 billion at current prices. (Source: European Parliament)

  • Single market e-commerce amounts to around EUR 204.5 billion a year (or 1.7% EU GDP). (Source: European Commission)

While digital transformation is predominantly used in a business context, it also impacts other organisations such as governments, public sector agencies and organisations in charge of providing efficient business framework conditions and support environments.

What should you expect from this workshop:

  • Get updates on the latest European initiatives for the digitalisation of business support systems (policy & support)

  • Learn from the good practices generated by the Interreg Europe projects

  • Share your knowledge and experience with peers

Join us at this Policy Learning Platform Workshop to meet other Interreg project partners, Managing Authorities and Priority networks and exchange experience and knowledge on 'Mastering the digital transformation of business support'.

Participants to this workshop are invited to join a networking cocktail on 26 November in the evening, an opportunity to meet the extended Interreg Europe community. You will have the chance to exchange not only with policymakers working in your own field, but also in Research and Innovation, Low-carbon or Environment and Resource efficiency.
