The Grassroots View

25. A digital Europe: between regulation and innovation

Jan. 24, 2023

Digital innovation has the power to transform our industries, our societies, our lives. It can also be a threat if not properly regulated. In this edition of The Grassroots View we take stock of the state of digital transformation in Europe. Where does the EU stand compared to the rest of the world? What are the challenges and opportunities ahead? How can Europe secure and hold a competitive position, while safeguarding the rights and welfare of its citizens? We’ll be exploring the issues and looking for answers with Tanya O'Carroll, expert on Technology & Human Rights. With Jennifer Baker, Brussels-based journalist specializing in technology, politics and digital legislation. And with Gonçalo Lobo Xavier, EESC employers’ group member representing the Portuguese Business Confederation, Franca Salis-Madinier, EESC Vice president of the workers group and of the Digital Transition and Single Market Observatory, and Giuseppe Guerini, EESC civil society group member and President of the European confederation of industrial and service cooperatives. neither hosts nor alters podcast files.
