POLITICO and ETNO are bringing you an exciting Virtual Brussels Playbook interview featuring European Commissioner for the internal market Thierry Breton on September 1 in Brussels.
3 June: Co-hosted by leading MEPs, as well as the GSMA and ETNO, we discussed the role that 5G can play in the coming months, as Europe copes with the coronavirus recession. During the discussion, not only we informed about 5G technology and use cases, but we also discussed the impact that misinformation is having on the public discourse around mobile networks.

Pioneering and Protecting: Looking Ahead to a New Decade
Brussels | 02 December 2019
Our tenth annual summit takes place amid fresh European leadership, including a new Parliament and Commission, and the prospect of continued political uncertainty at home and beyond.
Against this backdrop, we will examine new political and societal sentiments towards technology, as well as the key themes of trust, responsibility and sustainable development. We will also debate whether political and business leaders should collaborate to update industrial and competition policy in an ever more connected world.
