SmartAgriHubs Webinar: Governance for Digital Innovation Hubs

Event Date: 21/04/2020


The webinar aims to help DIHs in the agri-food sector to identify the key elements they need to consider when setting up their governance

About this Event

Digital Innovation Hubs are a key driving force supporting the digital transformation of the agri-food sector. DIHs offer a one-stop-shop for the farming and (agri) business communities. But how can DIHs organize their operations and how should they involve stakeholders in this process to generate maximum value in the agri-food sector? Who decides on programs and priorities that the DIHs follow? These are all questions relating to DIH governance.

This SmartAgriHubs webinar aims to help DIHs in the agri-food sector to identify the key elements they need to consider when setting up their operations and governance structure. Digital Innovation Hubs will learn about: What are the elements that DIHs need to consider when setting up their operations and governance structure?; How is governance related to the strategic direction of the hub and policies in the region?; When should DIHs take these decisions and which partner(s) in the DIH should define the DIH structure?

Govert Gijsbers will discuss these questions in the webinar ‘Governance for Digital Innovation Hubs’ on 21 April, at 14:00-15:00 CET.

You can join the webinar by following this link:

DIHNET Webinar: 'How can Digital Innovation Hubs help in times of COVID-19?'

Event Date: 25/03/2020


The outbreak and rapid spread of COVID-19 is putting public sector organisations through great challenges with local governments, public administrations, local health services particularly at the forefront of the crisis. If their efforts were further strengthened with the help of digital tools, they could be more effective in helping to slow the epidemic.

At the same time, many SMEs across the EU do not have access to the basic digital technologies needed for business continuity in this critical period. Digital Innovation Hubs are used to putting digital technology at work on real problems on the ground.

This why, with the help of the DIHNET Coordination and Support Action, we are inviting Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) to meet online on 25 March to discuss, among other topics, the immediate and longer-term needs of public sector organisations and SMEs due to COVID-19 and where digital tools / solutions could help in becoming more resilient. The DIH Community is invited to share their experience and tools during the webinar.

Virtual Industry Strategy Meeting

Event Date: 25/03/2020


Stakeholder Capitalism in Disruptive Times

March 25, 10.00 CET – 21.30 CET*

March 26, 13.00 CET – 17.00 CET


*The digital programme will convene participants across multiple time zones. Participants will not be required to be connected for the full duration of these time slots.

The coronavirus outbreak has caused major disruptions to demand and supply around the world. In this context, a strong case can be made that the most resilient companies – which will recover faster and emerge stronger – will be those that have the trust of their key stakeholders and are committed to sustainable solutions for the long run. Stakeholder capitalism recognizes the role of business as a key to responding successfully to these disruptions and to identifying opportunities to provide profitable, sustainable and long-term solutions. How do we operate to address immediate disruptions like the coronavirus outbreak while, in parallel, remaining focused on the longer term, systemic transitions taking place in industry?

The World Economic Forum’s Industry Strategy Officers community is a group of senior executives chosen by their companies to contribute to shaping industry and global agendas. Some 250 industry strategy officers will convene virtually on the Forum’s digital platform under the theme, Stakeholder Capitalism in Disruptive Times.

The programme is designed to be timely and relevant, providing highly useful content on the current state of industry and the global implications of the coronavirus outbreak. Digital sessions will allow participants to jointly explore how industries can shift from managing disruption to pioneering new stakeholder capitalism models, and identify critical interfaces where sectors can work together for economic and societal benefit.

In this regard, six imperatives will shape the industry agenda:

Economic Imperative: How can we build better business models that provide profitable, sustainable and long-term solutions?

Ecological Imperative: How can industries and markets adapt to ensure long-term viability and sustainability?

Industry Imperative: What are the future business models that will create, distribute and capture sustainable value?

Geopolitical Imperative: How can leaders build resilience in their business in times of geopolitical disruption?

Societal Imperative: How can business prepare for and respond to the impact of climate and health risks on society?

Technological Imperative: How do we leverage technology and new digital infrastructure to rethink business operations and business value propositions in a time of risking risks?

The virtual Industry Strategy Meeting 2020 is reserved for members of the Forum’s Strategy Officers Community and special guests.
