European Digital Economy Policies in context of US developments
Room 2.15, 06/12/2018 (10:00-10:45)
Get a readout of US views and positions on a range of Digital Economy Policies and enter into conversations.
The Digital Single Market policy priority modernises our digital policy landscape. This did not go unnoticed across the Atlantic and the United States, public and private actors alike, have shown a keen interest to understand motivation and drivers for the EU's high pace of digital policy setting.
Notably the rules of the road for the future data economy (GDPR, ePrivacy, free flow of data, ...), tech initiatives on Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Technologies, High Performance Computing, 5G and our rich work on digital platforms are in focus of US attention. This fuels conversations in which Europe is frequently seen as thought leader in digital policy setting - but equally faces criticism with regulation stifling innovation. In a conversational style we discuss positions the US takes on different EU policies and explore options for building a more effective and delivering collaboration.
