IWDK (Internet Week Denmark) started as an idea in 2013: a festival celebrating the internet. It has since then evolved from this every year, and today we are focusing on where technology takes us. We do this with a five days digital festival, and more than 7000 people participate when we put people first in the digital age and discuss our digital future. The festival showcases the many opportunities the internet opens up for our citizens and our businesses. But IWDK is also a forum where we can articulate and debate the challenges digital technologies present to our society.
Companies, educational institutions, networks, and individuals contribute to IWDK by hosting events and giving direct fundings and services. The festival is crowdsourced and only exists because of our great partners and event organizers!
This year’s festival takes place May 2 – 6, 2018. There are events for everyone and most of them are free on our IWDK venues at Dokk1, Aarhus City Hall, VIA, Navitas, Katrinebjerg and many other places in and around Aarhus. IWDK is a week of knowledge-sharing, learning, social meetings, and networking. And the best part is – everyone’s invited.
People First in the Digital Age
IWDK is a place to increase digital knowledge. Scandinavia holds a strong tradition of listening, learning and collaborating, and the festival enforces these principals. With the people – call them users or consumers – as the centre of our attention, we are exploring how technology affects our lives and the way we do business.
The festival is a great opportunity to share business cases, discuss the digital future, network with existing and new connections within the overall festival theme: People First in the Digital Age. Connecting business, creative and social leaders with entrepreneurs, opinion-makers and citizens in shaping the digital age.
During IWDK we share knowledge and exchange perspectives. To help man and machine bring out the best in each other. To make a smarter tomorrow with more innovative products, greater services, faster systems, more profitable businesses, and more sustainable solutions.
