ICT 2018: Imagine Digital – Connect Europe was held in Vienna on 4-6 December 2018. This research and innovation event focused on the European Union’s priorities in the digital transformation of society and industry. It presented an opportunity for the people involved in this transformation to share their experience and vision of Europe in the digital age.
GraphicsMedia.net was represented by its Managing Director, Jürgen Bund. as a true networking organization, our focus was laid on the many contacts that an event like ICT 2018 facilitates. Consequently, a plethora of meetings were scheduled in advance, and some ad-hoc during the event. In total, Jürgen Bund held over 20 meetings, with representatives both from the scientific community as well as from companies. As a result, possible memberships were discussed with three renowned European R&D institutes. 6 companies expressed their serious interest in joining GraphicsMedia.net’s upcoming Business Cluster (more information on this will follow soon, so stay tuned). Another significant result of the event was the establishment and initial discussion of a new project idea between GraphicsMedia.net, our member CEA-LIST and the University of Twente, settled in the domains of robotics and mechatronics.
