Back to events

Preceded by an EIF debate on 29 September that will focus on the Digital Services Act from a broader perspective, this event will specifically focus on the interoperability measures in the DSA.

The occasion will bring together different stakeholders who will share their views on the following key questions:

  • How can the Digital Services Act help improve interoperability as a tool for boosting innovation in the Digital Single Market?
  • What is interoperability and where does it make sense?
  • Which obstacles prevent interoperability (and data portability) in practice and how can we remove them?
  • Can the DSA provide an opportunity to remedy this situation?
