Towards a European future in mobile services.
Wednesday, 20 November 2013
Representation of the Free State of Bavaria to the European Union,
Rue Wiertz, 77, Brussels
Registration for this event is over!
Europe was once in the lead in mobile industry with companies like Ericsson, Nokia, Siemens and Alcatel. Today much of the mobile development has moved to other parts of the world, with US and Asia as the big players. But what is next? If Europe wants to become leading in mobile technology and service we need to look at those regions in Europe where things are happening today and try to learn from them. We also need to look at what is happening in other parts of the world.
This event is for those who work with regional development, industry policies and SME development and who are interested in what factors are important in order to build excellence in the field of mobile technology or services (some of the findings will be usable on other sectors as well). During the event you will hear about a large European study of emerging spots but also meet speakers with great industry experience and experience from policy making and cluster development.
