ECIPE Webinar: Europe’s Quest for Technology Sovereignty – What Lessons Learned From the Covid-19 Crisis?

May 26 2020
Venue: ZOOM Webinar
Speakers: Matthias Bauer, Dita Charanzová, Axel Voss, Fredrik Erixon
Time: 14:00

A panel discussion on the opportunities and pitfalls of competing perceptions of European technology sovereignty

The European Union’s recent industrial and digital policy strategies aim to strengthen Europe’s technology or digital sovereignty. More EU action is needed to defend European values and to secure Europe’s industrial competitiveness. The debate about technology sovereignty is timely. Yet – and importantly – there is no agreed definition of what of sovereignty in the realm of technologies actually means.

At the same time, the Covid-19 crisis and its profound implications have highlighted the importance of Europe’s digital transformation for Europeans’ social and economic well-being. The recent crisis provides new learnings about Europe’s quest for “technology sovereignty.”

Join us for a discussion on the opportunities and pitfalls of competing perceptions of European technology sovereignty:

  • What does sovereignty mean in the field of technology?
  • What will various definitions of technology sovereignty mean for European citizens and businesses?
  • What are the lessons learned from the Covid-19 crisis?
