Our events

From 8 to 30 November 2021, the French Embassy in Belgium and the Directorate General for Digital Transformation of the Belgian FPS BOSA are organising a series of conferences entitled "Homo Numericus" aimed at strengthening bilateral exchanges on the subject of digital technology.

This event is organised under the patronage of Mathieu Michel, Belgian Secretary of State for Digitalisation, and Cédric O., French Secretary of State for Digital Transition and Electronic Communications. A few months before the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union, this initiative will give Belgium and France the opportunity to exchange on their respective priorities in the digital field in order to identify new opportunities for cooperation at European level.

This event will take the form of 7 debates on the influence of digital technology on our society and the changes it brings in sectors such as education, work, politics, health and culture. "Homo Numericus" is part of the programme of the SPF BOSA, the AI4Belgium coalition and the programme of the French Institute "Novembre numérique".
