The Digital Rulebook

03 June 2021, 16:10 – 17:30 CEST


The revolution of digital transformation continues apace, and has never been as central as during the Covid-19 pandemic. In a digital world that knows no borders, the EU and the US share an interest to guide the social and economic impacts of this phenomenon on the global stage. At this year’s Munich Security Conference, US President Joe Biden underlined the need for transatlantic cooperation to “shape the rules that will govern the advance of technology”, while EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has proposed a “transatlantic technology alliance”, looking especially to establish the EU-US Trade and Technology Council.

At the same time, emergence of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, combined with an evolving geopolitical landscape and new challenges in global trade, have pushed many voices on both sides of the pond to call for closer alignment in how we approach digital innovation and rules. With Brussels and Washington sharing this ambition, the question becomes: how to put this into practice?

DIGITALEUROPE is bringing together key decision-makers from both sides of the Atlantic to discuss this question, and the prospects for a EU-US-led global Digital Rulebook.
