Europe and the world will significantly change by 2020. Digital Convergence will transform 21st century society and will have a disruptive influence on social innovation.

NESSI promotes that software, services, and data are key enablers to help resolve European societal and economic challenges across all sectors, both private and public, such as manufacturing, transportation, energy, and healthcare.
