From 27-30 June, Slovenia’s longest-standing and renowned “Bled eConference” will focus on how digitalisation can help Europe to emerge from the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. On 28 June, INNOPAY’s Mariane ter Veen will be participating in a panel discussion about the Data Governance Act.
Slovenia uses the conference to kickstart their presidency of the Council of the European Union on 1 July. Just like its two predecessors, Germany and Portugal, Slovenia regards the Eurozone’s economic recovery from the coronavirus crisis as a top priority. Digital progress and stronger data sovereignty in the EU will play a key role in stimulating that recovery.
The Bled eConference has been shaping electronic interactions since 1988, and the theme of this special 34th(!) edition is: ”Digital support from crisis to progressive change’. Speakers from numerous businesses, government bodies, tech companies and science will be sharing their knowledge related to the digital transformation and the various aspects of digitalisation.
