5G, Digitalisation – the Global Networks
EcoTalk is a shared event format of the Embassy of Finland, FINNCHAM Austria and the Sylvi Kekkonen Foundation.
The evenings are a mixture of discussions over the newest economic trends, musical performances of young Finnish artists, and informal networking.
This time we focused on how 5G and digitalisation are transforming our economic and working environments. The event took place at the residence of the Embassy of Finland.
The evening was opened by the speech of the Ambassador of Finland, Pirkko Hämäläinen. Thereafter, there was a musical performance by the Sylvi Kekkonen foundation scholarship awardees pianist Johannes Piirto and violin player Juho Valtonen.
The panelists of the roundtable discussion were Peter Wukowits (CEO Nokia Österreich), Manfred Immitzer (CEO Porsche Informatik), and Martin Resel (Chief Customer Officer Enterprise, A1 Telekom Austria AG). All three companies have a leading position in the development and implementation of the 5G technology. The moderator was Honorary Consul Ferdinand Auersberg. The discussion was lively, and there was also numerous questions from the audience.
The second part of the musical performance was powerful, yet at the same time emotional.
The evening was rounded up with typical Finnish dishes and drinks, whereby the guests continued with further in-depth discussions.
