ECIPE and CEP Webinar: The Future of the Transatlantic Relation – Priorities for the Slovenian Presidency

July 15 2021
Venue: ZOOM Webinar
Speakers: Dr. Stanislav Raščan, Heli Tiirmaa-Klaar, Fredrik Erixon, Joanna van der Merwe, Imants Lieģis
Time: 15:00

The Centre for European Perspective (CEP) and ECIPE invite you to a webinar.

There is new energy in EU-US relations. Digitalisation played a crucial role during the pandemic to keep the society going, and its role will only grow in the coming years. China’s rise as a technological power and the desire to protect liberal values, such as democracy and human rights, have made it urgent to deepen the partnership with like-minded countries on technology and digital trade. The recently established Trade and Technology Council (TTC) demonstrates that both the EU and the US are keen to deepen their relation and promote faster tech-enabled growth.

Join our panel of experts to discuss:

  • What should be the focus of the TTC? How to achieve better market access and streamline differing regulations?
  • What role can transatlantic cooperation play in the EU’s recovery plan?
  • Can Europe’s unilateral (regulatory) actions or the quest for strategic autonomy hurt the reinvigorated cooperation and the newly established TTC?
  • How can the transatlantic partnership help transform the European digital environment?
  • What are the core problems in Europe’s path towards a technologically advanced digital economy?
