Participants in Brussels

Your Technology Hotspot: Hessen and its partner regions

That goes without saying: Hessen is also represented in Brussels! We spent an evening with more than 120 interested people, discussing global satellite navigation systems (e. g. the future of Galileo). Together with ERIS@, the European Regional Information Society Association, we started an exhibition themed "European Regions - sharing ICT experience and expertise to build the knowledge society" at Avenue de l'Yser.

The exhibition will be sent into our partner regions in Poland, France and Italy.
