The coordinators of Smart eHUB and DIHELP ACADEMY organize in Bucharest a half-a-day workshop on the topic of digital transformation of Bucharest–Ilfov and South-Muntenia regions. The event aims to facilitate the exchange of ideas on what the main digitalisation challenges are in these regions and how could these be effectively tackled. The event gathers members of the Smart eHUB consortium and other relevant stakeholders in the region in order to find the best methods to start an innovative & digital-first ecosystem that would help the stakeholders to become more competitive on the European markets.

Innovation through digitization is a concept that is growing more and more globally. The use of digital technologies represents for the business environment the integration into the global. The main obstacle in the process of digital transformation of legal entities in the region is the know-how and the access to innovative and digital technologies. That’s why the new collaborative platform initiated by Smart Alliance Innovation Technology Cluster, USH Pro Business and ELINCLUS Cluster has proposed to develop the first Digital Innovation Hub, named Smart eHUB.

The goal of Smart eHUB is to work together with both public and private authorities to create a genuine agora of digitization and together to find the most innovative solutions to the most stringent problems identified in the latest Digital Economy and Society Index.

The coordinators of Smart eHUB intend to collaborate and work together with the main actors of our society such as: public authorities, universities, digitization partner associations, research institutes and software development companies to find feasible solutions at an excellent price-quality ratio in order to have a relevant impact in the Romanian economy.

On June 6th the event will be accompanied by two coaches from DIHELP ACADEMY, Olivier CHARTIER and Alexander VIGKOS, both professionals with a vast knowledge on how to develop, implement and help both consortium members and stakeholders to learn more about the digital opportunities and how it improves their businesses.
