Yesterday we concluded the 35th Bled eConference.
Since 1988 when professor Gričar started the EDI conference, the conference has never been cancelled and was only postponed once. This year was the first time back in Bled after two years online and our first time hosting a hybrid conference…
Dear authors, participants and friends,

Workshop on Digital transformation of SMEs – Lessons learnt from Slovenia and Hungary
We are excited to announce a workshop on the state of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) digitalization in recent years. On Monday afternoon, Marjeta Marolt from the University of Maribor, Slovenia and Andrea Kő from the Corvinus University of Budapest, Hungary will moderate a discussion on the lessons researchers from Slovenia and Hungary learnt from the digital transformation of SMEs.
SMEs are important contributors to the world’s economy. Digitalization is integral to the growth and resilience of enterprises, both large and small. However, despite the benefits and opportunities digital technologies bring, and the significant increase in uptake in recent years, many SMEs continue to lag behind in digital adoption compared to larger enterprises.
In this workshop, the invited speakers will provide an update on the current state of SMEs’ digitalization and discuss how to strengthen the resilience of SMEs and support their further growth, through the adoption of new technologies.
