The pace at which technology is transforming the world today is unprecedented. Digital solutions are helping economies to grow, businesses to become more efficient,
and people to be more productive in everyday life. But the digital sphere also creates challenges and the need for better regulation—the scope of which is intensely debated. Discussions during this event will focus on how to devise policies for the digital age that maximize the value of technology while preserving the values we hold timeless.
Carnegie Europe, in partnership with Microsoft and in association with the Dutch Presidency of the EU, will host an event gathering 150 experts from the European institutions, EU member states, think tanks, NGOs, and the private sector. The event will feature keynote remarks by Brad Smith, President and Chief Legal Officer of Microsoft, and Věra Jourová, European Commissioner for Justice, Consumers, and Gender Equality.
Speakers include Olivier Burgersdijk, Head of Strategy of the European Cybercrime Centre at Europol, Wouter Jurgens, Head of the Cyber Security Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, and Vincent Richardson, Chief Information Officer of Concern Worldwide. Forthcoming reports on cybergovernance by Carnegie Europe’s Sinan Ülgen and on the economic and socioeconomic impacts of the Internet of Things by Forrester will also be launched at the event.
