Highlights from ThinkDigital 2018

The 3rd Edition of Think Digital took place yesterday in the Egmont Palace.

ThinkDigital provides the platform all the participants to take part in high-level discussions with our speakers. 

The panel discussions were inspiring and shed new light on the ‘hot topics’ of digital such as health data, Artificial Intelligence, cybersecurity and how businesses in the digital sector can embody the SDG’s.

During the day, the coffee breaks and lunch provided the opportunity for both speakers and participants to share thoughts about the sessions and to make new contacts in this ever-changing sector.

We would like to thank all of the participants and speakers who came yesterday, to listen and share your thoughts.

We also would like to thank our partners:  Tata Consultancy Services, BSA The Software Alliance, Orange, EFPIA, Copenhagen Economics, ETNO, UFO Drive and Euractiv for their support of Think Digital 2018!

We hope to see you all next year for the 4th edition.
