ITAPA main themes
What will be the future of the digital state in Slovakia? Cloud in public administration, mobile identity, the benchmark of electronic services, the interconnection of state and financial institutions - we will also address these eGovernment topics.

Innovation, digitization, new technologies - all of those bring progress in many areas of life and the economy. How is Slovakia doing in the field of industrial development, implementation of the Internet of Things in practice, development of the Industry 4.0 concept or the use of big-data analyzes, we will discover with interesting guests from industry, academia, but also the state.
The Slovak healthcare system faces many challenges. At the time of the pandemic, we were compelled to realize the significance of the health sector even more. It is time when it is necessary to upgrade the Slovak healthcare system to a modern European level. As part of its first day, ITAPA brings a separate stream of interesting discussions and presentations on how to develop Slovak healthcare. We will discuss data, innovation, public health, prevention and predictive methods, artificial intelligence, but also how to reasonably invest the billions that Slovakia will receive from the European Commission.
