Launched as an initiative of the Cluj IT cluster and supported by the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany, Sibiu Innovation Days (SID) represented a necessity for Sibiu, for the university, for companies in the area, in the idea of bringing together of all decision makers that acts around the concepts of digitalization, innovation and knowledge transfer to a smarter society and a better life for its members. During the three days of the SID2021 conference we explored, with the guidance and expertise of our invited speakers, the process of digital transformation and how this can help our community of students, researchers, business, and decision makers to add value to their projects, initiatives and day to day activities. This paper briefly highlights the societal, economic and environmental challenges to which digitalization should solve and that have been brought up at SID2021.
