Digital Transformation - National and European Challenges and Risks in Post Pandemic Era

Unfortunately, when we had hoped that the pandemic crisis caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus was coming to an end and the mankind would try to get back to what was good before and adapt as well as possible to new challenges such as the accelerated digitization of several sectors of activity besides industry, here are new challenges and uncertainties at European and even worldwide targeting the stability and predictability of next day society with all economic, educational and social processes..

Even if society in the digital age is dynamically developing, the changes must be sustainable and take into account the local and global context. Sibiu Innovation Days 2022 will tackle issues related to contribution of digitalization in overcoming development traps of smart societies and the urgent post-pandemic reconstruction by value creation, digital transformation, smart governance and institutional capacities.


During the two days of the conference we will be exploring, with the guidance and expertise of our invited speakers hot topics, challenges and risks of post-pandemic era like cybersecurity and fake news, education transformation required by future of work, the acquiring of Entrepreneurship and Leadership skills, Smart Governance & Industry 5.0, Artificial Intelligence: fairness and equity in AI, all these applied in the process of digital transformation and how can help our community of students, researchers, business and decision makers to add value to their projects, initiatives and day to day activities.


The event is looking to strengthen the collaboration among all these stakeholders, while also improving the way in which we understand and use the innovative services available in Transylvania and the Sibiu region. The conference activities will emphasize current research and development concerns of companies active in the area, as well as create new opportunities for collaboration among participants active in a wide array of industries and fields. While highlighting contributions from Hasso-Plattner Knowledge Transfer Institute, active in “Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu, to the development of the local innovation ecosystem, the conference represents an important component in consolidating Sibiu City's position as an emerging innovation center.


We are looking forward to having you as a guest at this unique event! Join us for a two days journey in innovation between September 29th and 30th 2022!
