#ThinkDigital2019

UNLEASHING THE POTENTIAL OF
DIGITALISATION

This year, EU citizens have welcomed political agreements on new rules for online platforms, aiming to increase transparency and fairness. Think Digital will be the occasion to discuss the progress made towards cybersecurity and increased data and consumer protection. Our Summit will raise the question ‘What will the new European Commission‘s priorities be to strengthen the Digital Single Market?’

 

The Think Digital Summit is also a platform for industry to discuss the upcoming digital challenges including the Coordinated Plan on Artificial Intelligence and a Joint Action Plan on the spread of online disinformation. The sharing of ideas and discussions are at the heart of Think Digital success, join us now to have your voice heard and shape the future of European Digital Leadership. Take an active role by participating in panel discussions, leading to the preparation of a series of policy recommendations that will be carried through to the newly elected European Commission and Parliament.

Highlights from ThinkDigital 2018

The 3rd Edition of Think Digital took place yesterday in the Egmont Palace.

ThinkDigital provides the platform all the participants to take part in high-level discussions with our speakers. 

The panel discussions were inspiring and shed new light on the ‘hot topics’ of digital such as health data, Artificial Intelligence, cybersecurity and how businesses in the digital sector can embody the SDG’s.

During the day, the coffee breaks and lunch provided the opportunity for both speakers and participants to share thoughts about the sessions and to make new contacts in this ever-changing sector.

We would like to thank all of the participants and speakers who came yesterday, to listen and share your thoughts.

We also would like to thank our partners:  Tata Consultancy Services, BSA The Software Alliance, Orange, EFPIA, Copenhagen Economics, ETNO, UFO Drive and Euractiv for their support of Think Digital 2018!

We hope to see you all next year for the 4th edition.
