Keynote speakers include Charles Michel, President, European Council, and Kersti Kaljulaid, President, Estonia.

Our keynote panellists will cover the state of Europe’s digital Union in today’s context, looking at the Continent’s strength and weaknesses in digitalisation, the role of tech in building a more resilient society and will explore the potential of digital to bridge sustainability and growth.
