Covid-19 Crisis and the ICT Industry
The Covid-19 crisis has shown the wide importance of connectivity and digitization of our economies. The IT industry provides now the key infrastructures making possible for all of us to stay connected, while keeping the safe distance.
IT players can also contribute to the direct crisis response needs by providing innovative and adapted solutions for e-health (like telemedicine and artificial intelligence), e-education, support infrastructures for emergency response teams, or immediate e-government solutions for administrations. Many of these investments have been or will be supported by EU Structural and Investment Funds as part of the reallocation flexibility framework that all countries have in the Covid context.
