Digital Transition

Information

Digital transition lies at the heart of each theme of the 19th European Week of Regions and Cities. In a technology-driven world, understanding how regions and cities can enable the digital transition and how citizens can contribute to that process is key to sustainable economic growth.

This participatory lab will enable discussion and knowledge sharing by drawing on the experience of Interreg France (Channel) England programme and its funded projects that have been pioneering innovative digital methods to address various challenges – from improving health outcomes to promoting circular economy jobs and reducing plastic waste.

In this 90-minute session, there will be three breakout rooms taking place simultaneously.
