The pandemic proves that our world has never been so globalized and interdependent. But in this context, “local” is one of the sources of resilience for the future. Balancing these two dimensions is paramount: enabling global opportunities while respecting local specificities, this is one of the key roles of GS1 which lies within one central value of our organisation: inclusion. Hear more about it in this plenary session where companies will share their views on glocalisation.

After 45 years helping companies increase efficiency and reduce frictions and costs in the supply chains, we now enter a new era. Consumers, regulators, companies and investors now consider Sustainability as a key driver for business, slowly becoming equivalent to profitability. GS1 has started to support companies in a deep revolution of their operating models. Shared and structured data will be the elementary particles of a new way to assess a sustainable performance, even beyond business borders.
Let's hear how the European regulators and some of our members see Sustainability over the coming years in this session.
This is the meeting of the GS1 in Europe group on consumer transparency for alcoholic beverages who will discuss the latest developments on how to inform consumers, online and offline, on ingredients and nutritional declarations of alcoholic beverages.
After a successful foundational meeting on the implementation and governance of the GS1 Global Data Model (GDM), we will now continue with the setup and planning of the governance of the European layer. Hear about where the European MOs and the industry partners are with implementing the GDM. The governance process will also be explained and started. And the next product category in the GS1 Global Data Model will be discussed. This session is open for all! Industry, data pools and consultants, GS1 MOs, master data professionals and other people just interested in the topic are all welcome.
The Fruit & Vegetables Sector is a front-runner in cross-border data exchange and in establishing a future-proof supply chain. During this session get insights from user companies on how they use GS1 standards to exchange data and an outlook on the integration of the Fruit and Vegetables data model within the GS1 Global Data Model.
From contactless transport to modernized logistic labels and better traceability, the GS1 Standards are on the front row. Learn how GS1 is helping to facilitate this digitalization with new initiatives such as the Scan4transport label and through her participation in the FENIX project, a European funded project where 6 GS1 member organisations under the leadership of GS1 Germany, aim to develop the first federated data network to harmonise the exchange of logistics information along the nine major EU transport corridors.
We will also present the new Centre of excellence for T&L which aims to define new ways of working across GS1, where volunteering MOs or Regions will be taking responsibilities for some global activities, to achieve our goals more quickly.
Take a coffee and join us for a fun and interactive moment. Hear the latest news from some of our MOs, get a heads-up on the Forum progress and upcoming sessions and take your mind off your everyday routine: we offer a short and inspiring talk on "The mystery of mind-reading”.
In this inspirational talk, Peter Koijen from in2motivation will energise you with insights into the way we are programmed and how we can influence and programme our brain.
This has an enormous impact on your behaviour in daily life: from daily commercials that we are exposed to, to the way we see funny movies online and the way we interact with others in life.
Understanding the programming behind our behaviour is a key differentiator for emotional intelligence and success in life. Peter will show you with great enthusiasm the highlights of neuro-programming, neuromarketing and influencing.
Transforming business and operating models would be impossible without digital. Data will definitely be the enabler of the new fields of efficiency for economic operators. Automation, Robots, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence can bring a lot of progress for companies. But these new digital tools are efficient themselves only if they can share structured data. That is why a common “data language” and interoperability are so essential.
Let's talk about it in this session.
What does innovation mean? What can you achieve with it? And where do you start?
This session will show how to use the power of innovation and how you can start implementing it within your MO! Don't worry, you can start tomorrow with easy accessible steps.
During this session you will also hear about the latest initiative from some of our MOs on digital receipts for consumers.
Global Location Number (GLN) is being modernised from the ground up. This session will overview why GLN matters to you, what has been done already, and what is to come. Improved guidance, new standards, and an expansion to the GS1 Registry Platform are all on the agenda.

GS1 in Europe meets Trade and Sector Associations to discuss common regulatory challenges to find synergies and new ways of working together. Product identification and data sharing will be extensively discussed because they are hot topics all over Europe due to their positive impacts on the #greentransition, product safety and #circularity.
The service that makes this possible - at scale and for free - is the GS1 resolver. In this session, you will find out how GCP licensees and solution providers can use it and experiment with it.
