Digital Champion is a role instituted by the European Union since 2012: an ambassador for innovation chosen by each member state of both the European Union and the European commission, with the aim of promoting the positive aspects of a digitally inclusive society. Digital Champions work alongside citizens, companies, governments and academia, to foster the dissemination of digital technology across communities, through the promotion of digital skills in education and e-government services.

A founding partner of the Digital Champions Association, TIM has been crowned top industry partner on the occasion of the opening ceremony, on November 20th, 2014. TIM’s proximity to the project contributes to establishing a proactive network with other Italian innovators across the country; given the size and value of the players involved, Digital Champions is likely to bring the issue of digital technology right at the heart of the ongoing political debate. Our target is to build a positive and effective networking experience, offering the general public a chance to become part of the conversation, and raising consciousness about how each individual effort can improve the collective dimension of our society.

TIM plays a leading role in the digital transformation of our country, by promoting innovation in telecommunications as a tool to improve people’s everyday life. Digital technology can represent a channel to achieve social change: that’s why Digital Champions approach it as both as an enabler and as an educational and training tool, contributing to increase its social value (literacy, digital education), as well as its financial value (discovery of new markets/clients).

Digital Championship is a digital talent show devised and produced by TIM and the Digital Champions Associations: an innovation talent show that promotes the dissemination of digital culture in our country.
