FFG-ITEA Digital Transformation Masterclass in Vienna

FFG-ITEA Digital transformation masterclass

Digital transformation - learning from ITEA projects

Digital transition is often seen as a threat for European industries especially for the more traditional ones, while it could be used as an opportunity. ITEA has already supported many projects around this digital transition and in particular:

  • ACCELARATE: a platform for the acceleration of go-to market in the ICT Industry
  • SCALARE: a database of industrial best practices and tools to support enterprises in their transitions; and
  • InValue: data management architecture for manufacturing

ITEA and the Austrian Research Promotion Agency - FFG have set up a masterclass taking advantage of all the knowledge gathered in these three projects. This masterclass will take place in Vienna on 30 May 2017.

Geared towards your case

This masterclass targets Austrian industry representatives who are confronted with the digital transition of their organisation and who would like to learn how to best accelerate business operations through digitalisation.  For participants it will be a unique opportunity to meet a set of digital transition experts with a huge amount of industrial experience on the topic. During the masterclass the following topics will be presented:

  1. New digitally enabled business models and services
  2. Speed to market
  3. Digitising manufacturing

Each of the above-mentioned presentations will be enriched with inspirational concrete industrial use cases and there will be ample room for discussion and Q&A. The masterclass will also include 2 Open Space discussions fuelled by the cases and questions of the participants themselves. All masterclass participants will also get full access to the presentations, reference documents and relevant project publications.
