3rd Digital Agenda Cyprus Summit 2020

The 3rd Digital Agenda Cyprus Summit 2020 aims to highlight and discuss the prevalent issues of our time whilst examining the increased need for specialised knowledge in our rapidly changing world.

The conference will cover presentations and discussions on various topics, such as the management of consumer behaviour after the "Coronavirus Era", "Education on the brink", the emergence of the "Black Lives Matter" movement and how corporate ethos is now changing. We will also be addressing the influence of Social Media on democracy and the build-up and spread of conspiracy theories (e.g. 5G). Health once again will play a central role, with a debate revolving around research on the impact of steroids. Finally, the issue of Europe's handling of the pandemic will also be a topic of conversation.

The conference will be held entirely online, with high profile participants of the global and regional scene belonging to the field of technology, corporate ethics, research and innovation, consumer behaviour and much more.

Digital Agenda Cyprus Summit is a reality thanks to the support of Cyta, Bank of Cyprus, Deloitte, and LOGICOM. Participants will be the most important educational institutions of the country: University of Nicosia, European University Cyprus, Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics, Frederick University.
