This year Cluj IT Cluster is organizing the 11th edition of its flagship event: Cluj Innovation Days, a national benchmark initiative focused on innovation, specifically how it contributes to the creation and development of resilient and sustainable business ecosystems.
Over the past decade, Cluj Innovation Days have established a name for itself as a leading industry-driven event, positioning Cluj, and Romania, as an inspiring hub of innovation and as a smart community. The conference organized by Cluj IT Cluster has continued to grow as a platform to communicate knowledge and to share experiences brought forward by some of the most prestigious speakers and institutions in the world, from almost all continents.
Cluj Innovation Days 2023 will take place between the 24th and 26th of May, during which organizers have prepared three full days of activities dedicated to the impact generated by digital transformation in various areas of activity, as well as different aspects of innovation by addressing topics such as locally developed innovative products and solutions, artificial intelligence niches or innovation in the health sector.
May 25th will also mark the official launch of the Digital Innovation Hub for a Smart Safe and Sustainable Society (DIH4Society), the one stop shop for digital transformation within the North-West region of Romania. Spearheaded by Cluj IT Cluster, along with partners: Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Bistrita-Nasaud and the University of Oradea, the hub will distribute close to 4 million euro during the next 3 years as digital transformation services for SMEs in the production sector, for public institutions and for organizations in the health care sector.
Andrei Kelemen, Cluj IT’s CEO, had this to say: “I am thrilled that we are at this point where we can really build scale in what Cluj IT and its partners are doing. DIH4Society will have an important impact on the regional level by helping companies and public organizations to transition towards modern and resilient models. While we acknowledge that the Romanian economy and society are not at the forefront of the European landscape, we see this as an opportunity to grow quickly and catch up with other EU countries in what regards digitalization and digital transformation.”
