The current Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the already ongoing digital evolution and it forces us to move ahead faster than we could have anticipated. In this year's Directors Forum, Directors and Senior Managers are invited to reflect on the challenges and opportunities brought by the digital prevalence. How can science engagement organisations benefit from digital experiences, and how to monetise online activities? How to balance digital and physical offers, and how to provide the relevant training to staff? What are the new relationships with formal education, now and beyond the pandemic? These are strategic issues with an effect on our daily activities and long-term prospectives. Technopolis considers the organisation of Ecsite’s online Directors Forum a way of showing the world Technopolis is ready to embrace the opportunities arising from new technologies and to lead the way. It’s on!
