The last work programme of Horizon 2020 (H2020) is prioritising the development of key technologies for digital transformation. Future networks that can be created and deployed using powerful 5G technologies, software, cloud computing, Internet of Things and Next Generation internet (using blockchain) will contribute to a successful digital transformation. At the Digital Excellence Forum at ICT Proposers’ Day 2019, visitors will get precise information about the actions that can be funded in this context. The event will also provide the opportunity for networking and finding potential.

Founded in 2015, Autonomy & The Urban Mobility Summit annually brings together 8,000 visitors from all over the world to Paris to discuss mobility challenges and solutions.
Its goal is to support the transition to an intelligent and sustainable mobility by creating bridges between innovative companies that create mobility solutions adapted to contemporary challenges, and institutional and private decision-makers who are able to adopt and implement these solutions.
With representatives from high profile companies already confirmed, attendees will have the opportunity to network and learn about the latest breakthroughs, innovations, challenges and solutions affecting the international public transport industry today.
Monitoring data flows across the European Union’s territory is of strategic importance to inform EU decision-making, investment choices in the area of cloud computing and to assess the competitiveness of the European digital economy. Therefore, the European Commission is launching an anonymised survey to get an overview about such data flows.
Companies and public entities are encouraged to give their input to the survey until 15 October 2019.
As the number of Galileo-enabled smartphones in use rapidly approaches 1 billion, now is a good time to take a look at the other devices and applications where Galileo is adding accuracy – in the air, on the farm and in the world all around us. Over the past two years, theUseGalileo.eu portal has tracked Galileo’s market development – and the figures from the site are very encouraging!
