European Parliament (Room SPAAK 5B1

Building on the success of donating over 15,000 devices to Ukraine together with the European Commission and the Ukrainian Ministry of Digital Transformation, this event marks the next phase of our #LaptopsforUkraine campaign.

As Ukraine has now become officially a candidate country of the EU, it can teach us a lot about digital transformation and how they seize technology to defend themselves against Russia.
