Eco-Connect Europe addresses how Europe can best reap the benefits of digitalisation and rapid progress in fields such as AI, drawing on its rich expertise and its strong track record. The event also features an exhibition hall showcasing the latest in digital technologies ranging from IoT and Cloud to interactive animations including real-time posture recognition, Augmented Reality painting and an e-sports area.

Key announcements include:
* A study on global innovation networks featuring original research for The Economist Intelligence Unit.
