EU and US
The Transatlantic Tech Agenda

Monday, June 28th at 9 AM PDT / 6 PM CEST

As part of our engagement in transatlantic tech diplomacy, EIT Digital has partnered with Open Austria and the EU Delegation in Washington DC to host a panel titled The Transatlantic Tech Agenda, a conversation on the EU and US agendas for global change in the digital landscape.

Due to rapid changes and controversies in the tech space, the European Commission and U.S. Congress have both found it imperative to create proposals to address these issues, such as disinformation, platform responsibilities and liability, etc. While on two different sides of the Atlantic, these governing bodies share common values and visions of the path forward.

Join us on Monday, 28 June, to examine the similarities on issues and potential impacts of ongoing European Commission and US efforts to develop a comprehensive transatlantic tech agenda. We will also discuss who will benefit from more aligned regulation and what the implications are for US-based companies.

Speakers include:

Alejandro Cainzos Member of the Cabinet of Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager, European Commission
Eileen DonahoeExecutive Director of the Global Digital Policy Incubator, Stanford University
Frances BurwellDistinguished Fellow, Atlantic Council
Peter FatelnigMinister Counsellor for Digital Economy Policy, Delegation of the European Union to the United States

 

Moderated by Martin Rauchbauer, Austrian Tech Ambassador in the Silicon Valley, and Kylee Mebust, Communications & Events Manager, Open Austria.
