About the event

This visionary event took place at a crucial time as we shape the future of Europe’s technology landscape and provided a platform for policymakers, industry leaders, and experts to discuss and chart the course for Europe’s digital transformation and the path towards 2030.

Under the theme “Europe 2030: A Digital Powerhouse”, Masters of Digital delved into the profound impact of AI and emerging technologies on Europe’s economy, society, and sustainability. The conference explored the transformative potential of digital innovation in fostering economic growth, driving the digital and green transition, and ensuring Europe’s global competitiveness.
