The Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) and the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) have invited to a private roundtable discussion on transatlantic perspectives on digital policy on Wednesday, June 22, from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. EDT (4:30 – 5:30 p.m. CEST) via Zoom.
Russia’s war in Ukraine has accelerated transatlantic cooperation in many technology policy areas, but a key challenge remains data regulation. A post-Privacy Shield Transatlantic Data Privacy Framework has been announced to ensure transatlantic data flows - but no details have been revealed. The EU has introduced potentially transformational data regulation, including the Data Act and Data Governance Act, and is considering new means of cloud governance. In this event, CEPA and DGAP will bring together key stakeholders from the US and Germany to strategize on the next steps for building greater cooperation on data policy.
The discussion will be held according to Chatham House rules and is open only by invitation. It is part of CEPA’s Digital Innovation Initiative, which aims to build greater transatlantic cooperation on technology policy. It also takes place in the context of DGAP's Technology and Global Affairs program which looks to foster democratic digital governance in Europe and globally.
