The Europe Tech Summit from POLITICO Live takes place April 26-27 in Brussels.

Europe Tech Summit

April 26, 2023

Technology is moving fast – and policymakers are playing catch-up. The last two years saw progress on Europe’s quest to regulate Big Tech, as flagship files such as the Digital Markets Act (DMA) and the Digital Services Act (DSA) made strides within Brussels-based institutions.

It’s now time for Europe to step up and implement these policies, and to contend with the development of tomorrow’s internet. From protecting citizens from cyber threats and ensuring tech is sustainable enough to not overburden rising energy bills all the way to building an infrastructure for the Metaverse and coordinating international tech standards, there’s a lot to cover.

POLITICO Live’s 6th edition of the Europe Tech Summit is brought to you with the precise goal of getting to the bottom of these themes. Convening a selection of high-level speakers including leading policymakers, industry innovators and civil society actors, you won’t want to miss these key discussions on the future of European tech.

The Future Society is a visibility partner for this event. You are invited to register online via the button below and to follow the discussion on Twitter @LivePOLITICO with the hashtag #POLITICOTech.
