Cluj Innovation Days 2018

Date: 
31/05/2018

Digital transformation is the new buzz concept, threatening the until recently undisputed reign of “Innovation”. Lately, the two have become synonyms or, in many cases, they condition each other in a very fuzzy relationship: you cannot have innovation without at least some degree of digitalization, but digital transformation is a consequence of being innovative.

The process is already transforming our professional and personal environments. Various sectors are on the blink of radical transformation, while others will disappear altogether. It is a time where people and organizations are trying to understand how artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, internet of things, 3D printing, big data and data mining and other technologies will impact us.

All these topics are central to Cluj Innovation Days 2018 and will be approached by experienced international and national speakers from government, academia and business in an environment that encourages debates, sharing of ideas and experiences, partnerships and new projects.

The event will take place on the coming 24/25 May at the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine in Cluj-Napoca. You can book here your seat for a full 2-days access and take a look at the programme.

Cyber security attacks are a growing source of threat and concern, while also representing a growing economic opportunity for Europe, with the market predicted to be worth over $100 Billion by 2018 (European Commission). Moreover, cyber attacks in the EU are constantly growing in both their frequency (quintuplicate between 2013 and 2017) and sophistication.
