EU: how can your ICT business profit from the “large scale pilots” for the single digital market? [event]



The European Commission is organising a discussion in February for (mostly ICT) businesses about how to get business from the so called “large scale pilots” to promote the Single Digital Market. The event will be held in Brussels, the 21st of February 2013.

Large scale pilots are – as the name implies – big EU projects that aim to create frictionless, Europe wide solutions to things like e-identity, justice, business and health. Currently, there are pilot programmes for health, procurement, justice, personal and business documents and identification.

The aim is to make sure that when EU  member states implement solutions in these fields, they are interoperable with the solutions of other countries – which reduces friction for businesses that want to move or expand across the EU.

Here’s the invitation:

Join us for a fruitful discussion about business…and usage opportunities accruing from the Large Scale Pilot projects for digital services and learn how to be active participants in the coming developments of new Pan-European cross border services.

Some of the topics that are going to be addressed are:

  • What business opportunities exist for ICT industries under the new European Commission’s initiatives?
  • What can we learn from LSPs past experience/results, especially concerning the promotion of the Digital Single Market?
  • How can the ICT industry, through the facilitation of LSPs contribute to economic growth within the EU?
