In the last months, in our conversation with TCI members in TCI conferences and other fora we detected an increasing interest around digitization and the challenges that clusters face around it. We thought it could be of interest for other members as well to join the conversation and exchange views and solutions as part of a learning community within the TCI Network.
Two of our members leading the initiative, Vincent Dugré and Antonio Novo, have drafted some of the initial ideas and we are pleased to present you now the new TCI Learning Group "Digitization", that seeks to discuss what role clusters can play to increase the competitiveness of their industries by looking into digitization for building new capacities for clusters and enterprises that will support and enhance mobilization, cooperation, innovation, internationalization, social organization and sustainability.
The first meeting of the TCI Learning Group "Smart digital Ecosystems through Clusters" took place at the Ministry of Digital Agenda in Madrid the 2nd and 3rd of July 2018.
The first video conference meeting took place last 20 September and the session was dedicated to welcome the new group members and make an introduction to their collaborative platform. The meeting was also destinated to present to the group the activities planned for Toronto's meeting and to review the main goals and agree on the steps and agenda to reach them.
The event is free to TCI members and members will be given priority. Participants are expected to support their own travel, accommodation and subsistence expenses. If you are not a member follow this link for more information.
We invite all TCI members interested in getting involved in this cross-sectoral topic, wanting to learn how digitization can enhance competitiveness of clusters and cluster members to join us this summer in Madrid, Spain.
