Description

The Autumn 2019 meeting of the ERNACT network of cities and regions will take place in Slovenia on the 26th November. The meeting is being organised by the University of Ljubljana's, Laboratory for Telecommunications. The University represents the City of Ljubljana in the network.

This meeting is being held in conjunction with the INTERREG Europe CARPE DIGEM project

The meeting will take place in Svečina, a little village on the fringes of the Slovenske Gorice hills and close to the Austrian border, at the Valdhuber tourist farm.

The ERNACT partners have been very successful over the past number of years in assembling a portfolio of European projects that enables member regions to jointly address the challenges and opportunities of integrating digital transformation technologies into key sectors and smart specialisation priorities.

The network is currently implementing 10 transnational and interregional projects in over 50 regions, piloting technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and Internet of Things (IoT).

The representatives from the ERNACT regions last met in the Brussels Office of the Government of Cantabria in March of this year.

In addition to exploring short term project opportunities for the next 12 months and the progress of existing projects, the meeting aims to identify cross-regional combinations of smart specialisation/digital transformation that can form the basis for future EU projects.

It will also review financial performance, including an operating budget for 2020. An important aspect of the programme will be joint discussion between ERNACT and CARPE DIGEM in relation to digital innovation ecosystems and the role of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH).
