About Digital Innovations SIG

Launched as the Software SIG in 2016, the scope of the Digital Innovations (DI) SIG has broadened in recent years to encompass the full scope of digital innovations and how they impact on knowledge transfer and start-up activities.

In recent years, the DI SIG has expanded its scope to the following operational working groups::

  • Open Source
  • Data Management and Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  • Clinical Software
  • Digital Start-ups
  • Licensing Software Intellectual Property (IP)

In addition, the DI SIG has launched the Software Case Studies Database and the Software License Deal Terms Survey among its members in order to analyse and share up-to-date best practices in these areas.

As we see developments accelerating in areas such as e-learning, e-health, big data, AI, blockchain and open source, the DI SIG strives to be up-to-date and continuously build this knowledge base to exchange and collaborate among the ASTP community. So if you are involved in digital innovations knowledge transfer: Join the DI SIG!
