At the ICT 2018 Event, we at accelopment are excited to be hosting the networking session “The Power of Chatbots: Amplify the impact of your R&I projects with chatbots” and to gear up on some new project applications in the framework of the new ICT Work Programme 2019-2020.

If you are interested in the upcoming ICT call, chances are that you also will be going to the ICT 2018 Event in Vienna and we might see you there. If you are interested in a meeting, we suggest that you visit our networking session at the ICT Imagine Digital – Connect Europe 2018 taking place on the 5th of December 17:30-18:15 in Hall L6/1 or contact our project manager on spot Isabel Heller Sørensen. Full details of the event are available on the European Commissions website.

The European Commission is hosting this community event dedicated to hot research topics such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cybersecurity and the Blockchain Technology. Many of the event topics overlap with the upcoming call topics, so it should be a good chance to get networked and inspired if you are considering submitting a proposal.
