Emerging technologies promise significant benefits to our economy and society. We need a global approach to enable these technologies to scale-up across borders and find effective solutions to common challenges. In the context of the global race for leadership on artificial intelligence, Member States and the European Commission are defining a common approach to foster and shape the development and uptake of this technology. The EU is also preparing for upcoming elections and a new Commission mandate as well as negotiating the next Multiannual Financial Framework. Our conference will bring together corporate and government representatives from both sides of the Atlantic and beyond to discuss critical questions around the digital economy with a focus on Europe’s next digital agenda and global cooperation.
