Meet the 3 European CIOs of the Year 2016

At CIO CITY the CIONET community celebrated the 21 finalists of this year’s European CIO of the Year award. Since all the finalists substantially contributed to the success of their organisation, the jury of the award had to make a tough choice. The winners were announced at the evening dinner of the congress:
