SMART4ALL is funded by the EU program Horizon 2020 (Grant Agreement No. 872614) and aims to bring together a Digital Innovation Hub across Europe. It comprises a consortium of 25 partners from 16 countries but aims to reach out many more.
SMART4ALL Digital Innovation Hub builds capacity amongst European stakeholders via the development of selfsustained, cross-border experiments that transfer knowledge and technology between academia and industry. It targets customized low energy computing cyber-physical systems and the IoT and combines a set of unique characteristics that join together under a common vision different cultures, different policies, different geographical areas and different application domains, to accelerate digital transformation and increase digital skills in Europe.
During the SMART4ALL Special Session, funded projects from the 1st round of Open Calls on Focused and Cross-border Technology Transfer Experiments will be presented and discussed in terms of their innovation on the domains of Digitized Agriculture, Digitized Environment, Digitized Transport and Digitized Anything, aiming at a fertile interaction for the sustainability of digital transformation innovative projects.
Mr. Nikolaos Lambrogeorgos, Senior Account Manager of the Public Sector, Greece & Cyprus, at Cisco Hellas S.A. will address a keynote speech under the topic “Advancing Innovation through digital transformation acceleration and promotion of digital skills”.
At the end of the main session, a pitching event among these projects’ representatives and renown evaluators from the industrial, commercial and funding field will follow in an online event supported by CISCO webex. CISCO is also the big sponsor of the pitching event, providing a special prize for the winning project, which is a CCNA voucher!
