Data Flows: economic and trade impacts

Breakfast Debate


As the immediate crisis in transatlantic data flows is addressed, we need to think more broadly about how Europe can take advantage of the opportunities afforded both by data-driven innovation and the data that traditional industrial companies increasingly use to add value.

The role of regulation and trade is critical in maximizing the economic potential of intra-European and external data flows. Join us for a breakfast discussion on how smart regulation and trade agreements can boost data’s growth-enhancing potential.
