Today, the Commission unveils its ideas and actions for a digital transformation that works for all, reflecting the best of Europe: open, fair, diverse, democratic and confident. It presents a European society powered by digital solutions that put people first, opens up new opportunities for businesses, and boosts the development of trustworthy technology to foster an open and democratic society and a vibrant and sustainable economy. Digital is a key enabler to fighting climate change and achieving the green transition. The European data strategy and the policy options to ensure the human-centric development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) presented today are the first steps towards achieving these goals.
“Today’s strategies released by the new Commission set a course to unlock the value of digital transformation for Europe’s economy and society, while building on Europe’s core strength – its industrial base,” comments Malte Lohan, Orgalim Director General.
The raw materials industrial sector is increasingly implementing innovative techniques to improve productivity from existing assets and infrastructure leveraging on continuous innovations in sensor technology, machine connectivity, robotics and Artificial Intelligence.
A big logistical challenge for sporting and other public events is managing the large amount of waste they produce. Typical businesses lose around 20% of operational costs due to inefficient waste management.

The 4th edition of Smart Grid Cybersecurity draws together utility CISOs and cybersecurity leads for a thorough investigation of the latest prevention, detection and response strategies and solutions to guard against an ever-changing threat landscape.
Over three intensive days you will get the opportunity to understand how the utility CISO is being fully empowered to revolutionise the next phase of smart grid cybersecurity implementations. You will gain deep insights into the latest cybersecurity technological advancements tailored to the specific needs of the smart utility environment. And you will deep dive into the lessons learnt from recent practical implementations of utility cybersecurity, leveraging guidance from the NIS Directive and standards such as IEC 62443, and understand the future roadmaps being created to guard against an uncertain threat landscape.
The EU Agency for Cybersecurity publishes two studies related to the domain of standards supporting the Cybersecurity Act and the new Cybersecurity Certification Framework.
American Starlink project aims to bring high speed internet access across the globe by 2021. It’s certainly a mission in the sky! But how will Elon Musk’s plans to deploy this mega constellation of satellites impact on European citizens?
Light + Building is a trade fair for innovation, covering all electrically based building services systems; it seeks to promote the integrated planning of building services systems with a product spectrum that is unique, both in its breadth and its depth. The world’s largest trade fair for lighting and building services engineering, Light + Building showcases solutions for reducing the energy consumption of buildings, at the same time as raising the levels of comfort within them. The show covers everything from LED and photovoltaic technology to electric vehicles, ‘intelligent’ ways of using electricity with ‘smart metering’ and ‘smart grids’. By combining lighting and networked building services, the industry can offer an integrated range of products and services that make a crucial contribution to fully exploiting the potential for energy savings in buildings.
