The programme combined:

  • a conference programme, featuring influential speakers and debates around the EU’s digital policy;
  • an exhibition area, presenting EU-funded research and innovation successes;
  • networking sessions both offline and online; 
  • an Innovation & startups forum, bringing together market-oriented innovators and investors, and presenting marketable research and innovation results from EU-funded projects.

Dr. Loizos Christofi, eBOS R&D Director, and Ms. Gotelenne Piaton, eBOS Programme & Communications Manager, attended the event, where they met and engaged with the academic and research community, decision-makers, as well as business representatives. In addition, they held several networking meetings to discuss cooperation opportunities for the 2019 topics of the Horizon2020 work programme with long-term and prospective partners. 

‘ICT2018 was a great opportunity to share and discuss our experience and our vision for Europe in the digital age. We would like to thank all the fellow ICT-enthusiasts that we had the chance to meet during the event. We are looking forward to further exploring cooperation opportunities with them!’ said Dr. Louis Christofi.
