The European Union - United States relationship is the largest bilateral trade and cooperation relationship in the world. Enhancing cooperation on trade and technology are critical to future economic growth and stability in both the US and EU. As such, the launch of the EU-US Trade and Technology Council (TTC) on 29 September in Pittsburgh was a groundbreaking step in helping achieve a common vision and standards for governing new technologies and establishing effective and innovative Transatlantic tech policy for all.
With the second political TTC summit scheduled to take place 15-16 May in Paris, the event would like to provide an overview of the achieved objectives and ongoing discussions in the TTC from the EU and US perspective, as well as the importance of EU-US cooperation and technology in the Ukraine - Russia war.
