Tech & Politics Forum 2022 is back in Brussels on 26/9

 Power and rulemaking in digital markets: New policies, global challenges, EU ambitions

26 September, Brussels & online By FT-ETNO

 

The Tech & Politics Forum 2022 makes a return to in-person, after being fully online for 2 years. The “Power and rulemaking in digital markets: New policies, global challenges, EU ambitions” full-day event takes place on 26 September, from 9am – 5pm, in Brussels and online.  

As the digital world increasingly becomes indistinguishable from the real world, technology has never been so high before on the agenda of business and political leaders. We invite you to join industry CEOs, leading policymakers, investors, NGOs, civil society and thinkers to debate topics that are shaping the digital world of tomorrow, including:  

  • Europe’s new digital industrial policy 
  • The future of the EU Internet ecosystem 
  • The future of the digital economy: regional versus global alliances 
  • Europe’s hunger for connectivity: fibre, 5G, 6G and beyond 
  • A hands-on approach to digitally-empowered sustainability  

Apply to attend in person (here) or online (here).  

Visit the website for further details and updates.

.@mathieuweill: Telcos are really doing the work of rolling out networks when there is a clear regulatory framework in place. They can help us get to the #EUDigitalDecade targets. #eadebates
