Digitalising Development – Are We Ready for The Future?

Are We Ready for the Future?

It seems clear that at the time of unprecedented technological advancements, the sky should be the only limit. However, this is not happening.



Digitalising Development is a hands-on participative conference. The talks, panels and workshops will inspire and help the participants to figure out concrete solutions and the steps to reach them. We are creating a space for all stakeholders to dream together and to forge foundations for partnerships for bringing these dreams into life.
