QI-Digital Forum 2024 

The EU adopts the AI Act, the Digital Product Passport takes shape and more and more European data room concepts promise secure digital ecosystems: The year 2024 holds a number of key developments in store for quality infrastructure (QI). These topics are therefore also the focus of the 3rd QI Digital Forum.

09 and 10 October 2024

in Berlin (Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM), Unter den Eichen 87, 12205 Berlin)

You can expect exciting keynotes, panel discussions and specialist presentations as well as an interactive marketplace with exhibitors and exhibits relating to the digitalisation of QI.
