At the initiative of the Luxembourg Digital Innovation Hub (L-DIH), under the aegis of Luxinnovation and FEDIL, "DIH on Tour" will crisscross the Grand Duchy between 25 October and 17 November 2021 in order to meet with industrial companies.

The digital transformation of industry brings both challenges and a multitude of new opportunities. In order to better understand the needs of industrial companies and provide them with the services they require, the L-DIH, managed by Luxinnovation and FEDIL, is organising the first edition of "DIH on Tour".

Between 25 October and 17 November, a “school bus” will travel across the country and stop in twelve industrial zones (Lentzweiler, Wiltz, Friedhaff, Réiden, Bissen, Echternach, Potaschberg, Contern, Windhof, Ellange, Differdange and Belval) in order to meet directly with industry players wishing to embark on a digitalisation journey or to push an ongoing process further.

"'DIH on Tour' is one of the answers to the requests we received from companies we met during our previous events", explained Arnaud Lambert, Director of the L-DIH at Luxinnovation. "Our goal is to spend time directly in their vicinity and to make ourselves easily accessible to the entire teams of their organisations: staff, managers or executives". 

Targeted training sessions on the topics of digitalisation and cybersecurity will be given each day in a bus fitted out as a classroom. Round tables are also planned with experts on these topics. Everything will take place at the heart of Luxembourg's main industrial sites.

"It is important to go out in the field in order to better understand the issues and challenges that digital transformation brings to our companies. This approach will help us to improve the support they need to succeed in their digitalisation projects", commented René Winkin, General Manager of FEDIL, who will be present at the first session in Lentzweiler on 25 October.
