Delta Trends Day 2020


Organiser: University of Tartu Delta Centre
Venue: World Wide Web
Date: May 26, 2020
Time: 10:00 – 17:00

Target Group: business people and entrepreneurs, educators and school leaders, researchers and otherwise curious people, statesmen and community enthusiasts, medical and public health professionals, students and high school graduates

New business and life models are emerging from the crisis. While the topic of recent months has been the COVID-19 crisis, its effects, duration, mitigation measures, exit strategies, etc., the Online Delta Trends Day 2020 looks further – we are trying to see the wood for the trees.

Together with wise people and visionaries, we seek to decipher the major changes and new opportunities in various areas of life – business and economy, education and science, government, international relations, medicine and public health, urbanisation and rural life, our daily lives.

Delta Trends Day seeks answers to questions such as:

  • What are the main changes resulting from the crisis in different areas?
  • What are the threats and opportunities of these changes?
  • What should we do as a country, a region, a company, a university and people to seize opportunities?

Delta Trend Day 2020 is free for everyone!
