The Annual Conference 2018 will take place in Prague on 9-12 September. The meeting is organized and hosted by The Office for Government Representation in Property Affairs (OGRPA), Czech Republic.

The theme for this conference focuses on Transactions and Transitions of State-owned Real Estate and the intention is to look at this topic from many different perspectives. Starting at the decision-making point of which asset is appropriate to sell and which is not. We would like to learn from those who have implemented any innovative sales methods, participated in any interesting projects, and then we can look at the conditions of when to transfer assets to other institutions or municipalities.

Strategy Working Table - digital maturity

March 8th-9th 2018 the Strategy Working Table took place in Helsinki and seven members of PuRE-net participated. The theme was digitalization and how the organizations adapt to the new technologies.

Prior the Strategy Working Table a survey has been sent out to all the members of PuRE-net and it explored the level of digitalization in each organization. Professor Seppo Junnila and his research team from Aalto University were in charge of the analysis.

During the two days there were presentations by the research team, group discussions and workshops. The first day focused on the results of the survey and the participants discussed digital strategies, back office assets, smart buildings and digital customer service.

The second day focused on how the PuRE-net members can create value by the new technologies. The discussion was based on a platform theory that combines data suppliers and data consumers and the participants talked about the opportunities for data distribution.

There were a lot of interesting discussions and digitalization might be a topic PuRE-net will explore further in the future.

The final report is available at the website under a login and the Strategy Working Table will be presented at the annual conference in Prague, 9-12 September 2018. For further information, please contact Peter Torp or Katrine Marie Bork Davidsen from the Danish Building and Property Agency.
