The Future of the Transatlantic Relations – Priorities for the Slovenian Presidency

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?

The Centre for European Perspective – CEP & the European Centre for International Political Economy – ECIPE invite you to a webinar entitled:

The Future of the Transatlantic Relations – Priorities for the Slovenian Presidency

July 15, 2021

CET

 

 

 

There is a new energy in EU-US /> Digitalisation played a crucial role during the pandemic to keep the society going, and its role will only grow in the coming ; 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 relations 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?
  •  How can the transatlantic partnership help transform the European digital environment?
  •  Can Europe’s unilateral (regulatory) actions or the quest for strategic autonomy hurt the reinvigorated cooperation and the newly established TTC?
  •  What are the core problems in Europe’s path towards a technologically advanced digital economy?

 

 Speakers:

  • Dr Stanislav Raščan, State Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Slovenia
  • Fredrik Erixon, Director, European Centre for International Political Economy
  • Joanna van der Merwe, Fellow, Defense Tech Initiative, Center for European Policy Analysis
