ICT2018, Imagine Digital - Connect Europe, is the bi-annual research and innovation event by the European Commission that focuses on the European Union’s priorities in the digital transformation of society and industry. The event boasts a rich programme and an exhibition area showcasing the most innovative research projects that are currently being funded by Horizon2020. The participants are mainly industry and research stakeholders that have an active interest in the European research agenda, as well as policy makers and press. This year’s event was held in Vienna and boasted over 4800 visitors.
Following an application process, MARCONI was selected as one of the projects invited to exhibit at the event. We presented there the pilots that the NPO and VRT were currently preparing. This was done on a large screen and with the help of tablets. The consortium members provided then the visitors with additional information about the technical aspects. Due to the vicinity of our booth with that of HRadio, one of the videos that were presented on one of the big screens was exemplifying the way in which technologies from both projects can be used in together.
