Event Description

In a time of global uncertainty, digital technology has enabled continuity and resilience for society as a whole. Europe has the ambition of creating the digital champions of tomorrow and being a leader of the digital transformation. To do so, it must formulate a clear set of policies that promote innovation, attract investment, and strengthen the digital ecosystem, by ensuring a level playing field. Only through building a robust digital ecosystem of start-ups and Small and Medium Enterprises can we ensure a competitive marketplace.
What is needed to complete the digital single market? Which policies should we enact to ensure a level playing field? Do we have a robust protection mechanism in place for consumers and start-ups to ensure a strong competitive digital ecosystem?
These will be some of the issues tackled by our distinguished speakers
during our webinar.
Discussants:

- Pablo Arias Echeverría, MEP,

- Karim Lesina, Senior Vice President of International External and Regulatory Affairs, 

Moderated by:
