The relationship between the U.S. and Europe over how to foster and govern the digital world is still under great strain. But the digital relationship also offers many opportunities. While both sides of the Atlantic remain the Western world’s largest online markets, lawmakers in Washington and Brussels stand at loggerheads over many of the issues that will determine how people from San Francisco to Stockholm use digital services that have become central to their daily lives. That includes how companies and governments should have access to the digital data of hundreds of millions of European and American citizens, whether Silicon Valley’s largest companies have garnered too much control over the basic infrastructure of the internet, and how such digital giants should pay into national coffers when their services often transcend countries borders.
This event will take place on September 30, from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. CEST.
This POLITICO Live event will bring together EU and US policymakers, regulators and industry experts to explore the best ways to bridge this transatlantic gap on regulating big tech and the potential consensus on how to govern the digital world.
