Focus on
ETNO event: Achieving the Digital Compass Targets
 
The European Commission has published the Digital Compass Targets, and the work to achieving them is speeding up. We take the opportunity to look at the latest facts and figures on 5G, FTTH and services, the key regulatory challenges ahead but also ask panelists: Is Europe on track to achieve the Digital Compass Targets? How can regulation help achieve the Digital Compass Targets?

This hybrid event takes place on 22 October 2021, from 9h30 – 12h00 am CEST in Brussels (Town Hall Europe, Square de Meeûs 5-6) and online. Throughout the event, we invite all participants to join an open discussion with the panelists.
 
Speakers joining the event come from: European Commission, BEREC, BEUC, Frontier Economics and ETNO. Find out more about the event here.

What's Next for the Transatlantic Trade and Technology Council?


Enhancing bilateral cooperation between Europe and the United States is key to boosting bilateral trade and investment, avoiding unnecessary barriers to trade, and strengthening global cooperation on digital policy, technology, and supply chains. The launch of the EU-US Trade and Technology Council (TTC) on 29 September 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.
ITI - The Information Technology Industry Council - launched an event featuring tech industry leaders and policy makers on both sides of the Atlantic to discuss the future of the TTC and how industry and policy can work together to make this new venture a success.

Commission EVP Margarethe Vestager delivered the keynote speech at this hybrid event hosted by ITI. ITI CEO and President Jason Oxman and other high level policy actors and industry experts also came together to share ideas, best practices, and debate the future of the TTC. Watch the event here!
