The Strategy Working Table takes places March 8th-9th in Helsinki. This year the theme is "digital maturity".

The workshop focuses on digital maturity as society is becoming more digital, which has direct implications on the real estate operations. The purpose is to explore the capabilities of PuRE-Net organizations to utilize digitalization in cutting cost and improving the service provisioning.

At the workshop we will discuss how digitalization is used by the PuRE-Net members and what the organizations will do in the future to adapt to the new technologies.
