Conference “Accelerating Digital Transformation in Public Administration and Services”


– 3 November 2022 –
CLUJ-NAPOCA, Territorial Radio Studio, Str. Donath nr. 160

ACADEMIA OF ROMANIAN SCIENTISTS, RADIO ROMANIA and DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION COUNCIL organise Demonstration conference and debate on digital transformation of administrative institutions in partnership with the private sector .

From AI governance to accessing public services, public authorities are now rethinking their old ways of working with citizens, boosted by the evolution of digital internet services and mobile apps.

The European Union objective launched by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen of digital transformation of Europe by 2030 is translated into the national documents of the NRDP, generating the involvement of companies providing ICT hardware and software solutions in the field of digitisation.

The conference is a good opportunity to showcase private sector solutions to improve public services provided by public administration, with companies being invited to present case studies and best practice models implemented both in the country and abroad. Representatives from academia, central and local government, national and multinational companies, associations and the media are invited to participate in the demonstration debate.

The topics of interest cover eGovernment, eHealth, eLearning, eTransportation and Cybersecurity.

New trends in 2022 in digital transformation include hybrid work, intelligent search, artificial intelligence for IT processes, machine learning, customer data platforms (CDP), agile embedded platforms, DevOps and IT service management (ITSM). The use of these sophisticated tools enables organisations to accelerate innovation, digitisation, automation and modernisation.

The media partners of the conference are Radio Romania, COMUNICAȚII Mobile Magazine and
The in-person conference will also be streamed LIVE on YouTube, Zoom, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and media partners’ websites.
