The EBDVF hybrid event experience was designed to bring five days of seamless sessions, talks and workshops to the online audience. The event took place from November 29th to December 3rd on a virtual event platform. Highlight of the week was the main day, broadcasted from a live stage in Ljubljana. During the day, representatives from the European Commission, the European Parliament, Slovenian ministries and the industry gave their insight to the main topics of the week. During the afternoon, the CEOs and heads of the Data Spaces Business Alliance introduced their plans and vision for the collaboration. Also as a part of the main day agenda, the new i-Space labelled DIHs were announced and left their video greetings for the community.

The week continued with programme distributed into four daily tracks full of interesting and topical sessions delivered by the community, European projects and sponsors.  The engaging online event concept and the high-quality of the content made the  event week a great success with over 1500 registrants!
