Session 3: The Digital Rulebook  27 May 2021 [subject to change]


The revolution of digital transformation continues apace, and has never been as central as during the Covid-19 pandemic. In a digital world that knows no borders, the EU and the US share an interest – even a duty – to guide the social and economic impacts of this phenomenon on the global stage. At this year’s Munich Security Conference, President Joe Biden underlined the need for transatlantic cooperation to “shape the rules that will govern the advance of technology”, while EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has proposed a “transatlantic technology alliance”, looking especially to the proposed EU-US Trade and Technology Council. With Brussels and Washington sharing this ambition towards global digital rules, the question becomes: how to put this into practice? DIGITALEUROPE is bringing together decision-makers and stakeholders to discuss this question, and the prospects for a EU-US-led global Digital Rulebook 

Programme and speakers to be announced soon. Registration for this Session will open soon.
