This year’s Summit’s theme is Connect ­- Explore ­ – Develop. These are three dynamics verbs widely used in both the ICT branch as in common language.

With Connect we want to emphasize on connectivity (to the internet), interfacing of systems and social media. Connect can also be linked to bringing people, communities, business and the government together and sharing knowledge.

With Explore we want to emphasize on research, knowledge transfer and learning. Explore can also be linked to browsing and discovering new worlds and opportunities.

With Develop we want to focus on application development, mobile apps and innovation. But development can also be linked to the development of an individual, sector, organization or country.
