Webinar: Is the EU ready for the data economy?

Thursday, February 10, 2022 - 17:00

Whilst some may view these pieces of legislation as a step forward in promoting innovation for the benefit of society, others argue that the EU will not be able to balance tech sovereignty and data protection with open markets and free trade, especially for companies based in the USA. Is the industry prepared to manage these volumes of data? Are current business models ready for these new digital rules? What are the potential problems with data sharing and processing? Can the EU find a model to incentivise secure data sharing for companies? Are the EU, its companies, and its citizens, data-ready?

To discuss these and other questions the German Economic Institute and the European Liberal Forum cordially invite you to their Panel discussion “Is the EU ready for the data economy?” on 10th of February 2022, from 11h-12h30, on Zoom.
