  • the latest evidence on weak signals, wild cards, megatrends and possible scenarios on how digital cohesion can be achieved as well as lessons learnt from foresight for the present;
  • a presentation of the CEF2 Digital programme, which provides funding for the rapid deployment and use of 5G for smart communities and innovative applications;
