Local authorities, higher level education institutions and development agencies working together towards a cross-border digital transformation action plan.
09 May 2022 - CARPE DIGEM  project
ERNACT owners' Donegal County Council (Ireland) and Derry City and Strabane District Council (Northern Ireland), together with higher level education institutions (North West Regional College, Atlantic Technological University – ATU Donegal, and Ulster University) and development agencies (Northern & Western Regional Assembly and Special EU Programmes Body – SEUPB) will meet tomorrow at Ulster University in the city of Derry to discuss digital transformation in the North West City Region.

This event, in the form of roundtable with the region’s development leaders, will form part of a study visit to Derry and Donegal by representatives from other European regions and cities participating in the Interreg Europe funded CARPE DIGEM project. The session will provide an overview of the Digital Transformation Ecosystem in the cross-border region, including the inputs of Intelligent Cities Challenge programme and Donegal Digital strategy, and it will bring the opportunity to further discuss a cross-border digital action plan.

ERNACT, a CARPE DIGEM project partner, represents Derry & Strabane and Donegal councils in this interreg Europe project. Through CARPE DIGEM, the ERNACT network has been exploring the possibilities inherent in the Donegal Digital Action Plan and Derry & Strabane’s participation in the EU’s Digital and Intelligent Cities Challenge and City Deal programmes to identify digital transformation areas that the North West City Region could address on a cross-border basis.

The purpose of the roundtable is to present the results to the region’s leaders, to receive feedback and to discuss how digital transformation fits in with the city region’s wider development plan. Furthermore, project visitors from France, Slovenia, Madeira and Sweden will also provide insights and experiences based on their own digital transformation plans.

Stay tuned!
