ICT 2013

DIGIT ICT Conference 2013 took place on November 26th and this year it was aimed at "Addressing the Crisis the DigITal Way". Experts from private companies and the public sector concentrated on how to get the most benefit from IT in a time of reduced financial and human resources.

In particular, the conference examined ways of rationalizing the web, designing an IT strategy and educating employees in a digital age, empowering citizen activism through social media, using 'human sensor networks' in addition to big data and tackling the security challenges for eGovernment. You can find the agenda of the conference herepdf.

The ICT Conference is an annual event which has grown out of the directorate general for Informatics' one day annual e-Commission Symposium and has been organized since 2007. This year's event built on the ICT Conference 2012, which examined the ways of laying the digital foundations for 21st century EU administrations. Find more about the 2012 discussions herepdf.
