Investment in IoT and AI integrations into manufacturing worldwide will reach $208 billion in 2023, 13.1% more than in 2022. This has huge implications for skills across industry. Through LEADS, we brought together over 30 stakeholders from leading universities, training providers, industry and policy makers including the European Commission, EIT, Gruppo Maggioli, IDC Europe, Polytechnic University of Madrid, AIOTI, BDVA, Trinity College Dublin and University of Southern Denmark for helping to shape the future Digital Europe funding for advanced digital skills.
Navigating the future of energy through the Cloud-Edge-IoT Continuum
The EU’s €60M investment in Cloud-Edge-IoT tech creates a new era for European providers and end-users through UNLOCK. Our Giving Energy an Edge event, united 100+ visionaries, from industry experts to start-ups, including DG CNECT, AIOTI, re.alto energy, SEITA and France’s RTE to delve into the latest energy trends. The technology that will underpin sustainable energy for all is now within our reach.
The Twin Advantage | Elevating Inventory Management in Dynamic Supply Chains
Digital twins provide an opportunity for contextualising supply chains, they are the key to pinpoint how and where we can decarbonise logistics and production across industries. This is just one of the key takeaways from the panel we moderated at The Economist Metaverse Summit.
Revolutionising quantum in Europe
The EU and UK commit to invest $8.3bn by 2025 in quantum projects. in quantum technologies, the harbingers of security and future technological sovereignty. In March, as part of International Women’s Day we held a webinar to shine a light on how women are contributing to the quantum advantage.
In September, we held our Anchoring Quantum webinar with investors from across Europe and ASEAN to find out why investment in Quantum has increased from 18.6 percent from €344 million in 2021 to €408 million in 2022. Runa Capital, Speedinvest, Presidio Ventures, Atmos VC and Lakestar shared their investment thesis and why investing in deeptech is THE thing!
