SEPT 2021 – JUNE 2022 PROGRAM 


Welcome to the 2nd edition of the Virtual DI Summit! Our objective is to Grow Your Data Innovation Knowledge & Experience: public organizations, private companies, academics, and citizens in general. Therefore, we organize live webcasts that deliver immediately actionable insights. Registration is free, as well as the 12-month available on-demand webcast recordings. Additionally, we create valuable content about Data Innovation such as blogs and also plan podcasts.


We focus on showing you meaningful, practical Innovative Applications from a societal, business, and technical perspective during the webcasts. Each webcast includes an inspiring keynote by an expert, followed up by knowledgeable speakers who explain in-depth, purposeful, real-life Data Innovation cases. At the end of every webcast, we have a 15-minute question-and-answer session based on the audience’s questions.
