03 Jun REGISTRATE NOW:“Building a European approach to Data Society” 23 June 12:00 CET
I have the pleasure to invite you to a public webinar on “Building a European approach to Data Society”, taking place on Tuesday the 23rd of June from 12:00 to 14:15 CET, hosted and organized by MEP Miapetra Kumpula-Natri, the ITRE committee’s rapporteur on the Data Strategy report.
The volume of global data is predicted to increase from 33 zettabytes in 2018 to 175 zettabytes in 2025, amounting to a 530% increase. Access to data and fair use of data will become ever-increasingly important to us all – citizens, companies and the public sector, to empower us to find better solutions and make better decisions for today and tomorrow. What are the prerequisites to make this upcoming global transformation a success for Europe? In a global world of data, what should the European approach to the data society look like?
Join us in an event with one on one debates between key experts and stakeholders of the sector.
The registration is open, please register via this link. The same link can be used to participate in the event on Tuesday, June 23.
