The ICT Day

North Rhine-Westphalia’s ICT Day

– a success story

In November 2014 North Rhine-Westphalia’s ICT Day will be taking place for the fifth time. Launched in 2009, the event has firmly established itself in the regional ICT calendar. ICT Day provides impulses, presents performance and achievements, and sets up a platform for dialogue among the members of NRW’s ICT community as well as with actors from far further afield. Leading international speakers guarantee the highest level of professional competence, and a stimulating and varied environment is conducive to fruitful discussion and networking. The event brings together decision makers from industry, science, politics and the wider North Rhine-Westphalian community, and sheds a powerful light on the latest trends and issues, especially in their impact on the region. The accompanying trade fair cum exhibition allows NRW's big players, hidden champions, start-ups, and networks to present their services and solutions. In this respect ICT Day plays an important role in strengthening the profile of the ICT industry both within and without, in setting new trends, and in promoting regional ventures and partnerships.

After previous successful venues in Essen, Wuppertal, Bonn and Paderborn, ICT Day 2014 is set to meet once more at the heart of the Ruhr Industrial Area – this time in the city of Bochum.

ICT.NRW is the central digital platform of North Rhine-Westphalia’s ICT scene, and serves as the communications hub for NRW’s ICT players. It is both a forum for the initiatives that will shape the digital future of the state and a nascent competence center for ICT ‘Made in NRW’. At the heart of our concerns are the major innovations – for example in cyber physical systems for industry, in medical-technical networking, in smart grids, self-controlled logistic processes, and safe and efficient traffic control systems – that will impact many aspects of work and life in Industry 4.0. ICT.NRW is a forum for dialogue between industry, research and politics; it creates open spaces for cross-disciplinary innovation, promotes pioneering start-ups, fosters awareness of the social aspects of the digital revolution, and supports the internationalization of NRW’s enterprises. ICT.NRW represents the interests and publicizes the profile of NRW’s ICT sector both within and beyond state borders, creating openings for the new projects and ideas of innovative individuals and companies. Regional associations and networks profit from our know-how and contacts, both virtually via and offline from our promotion of events, corporate travel and trade fairs.
