Event Description

At this event in Brussels the Vodafone Institute will bring together economists, academics, entrepreneurs, technologists, and policymakers to discuss how we can get ahead of the game and secure a successful and safe digital future for Europe.
 
The next revolution in digital technology is coming. It will change how all of us live our lives, build our societies and run our economies. Everything will be connected, with unprecedented ability to analyse, monitor and interact with the world around us. Nothing will ever be quite the same again in future: homes, offices, factories, transport, healthcare – even, perhaps, the human body itself.
 
Much of this will be benign, enhancing lives and livelihoods in ways unimaginable to previous generations. But some of what lies ahead also presents serious and complex challenges in terms of ethics, equality and safety. Join us as we bring together leading economists, academics and entrepreneurs to discuss what’s needed to create a safe and sustainable digital future for Europe.
 
20 February 2018, 6:00 to 8.00 pm
BMW Brand Store, Boulevard de Waterloo 23-24, Brussels 1000
Doors open at 5.30pm, talks start at 6.00pm sharp, walking dinner to follow.
