Media Partnership - CODE Talks: A More Competitive Europe Starts with Open Digital Ecosystems


Media Partnership - CODE Talks: A More Competitive Europe Starts with Open Digital Ecosystems

Register here for online participation


On 22 May the Coalition for Open Digital Ecosystems (CODE) will bring together policymakers, academics, consumer advocates and business representatives to share perspectives on how open digital ecosystems can drive competition in Europe.

New technologies have a profound impact on our lives, the economy and overall productivity. CODE believes the EU must take the lead in encouraging and embedding the principles of openness that will spur growth and innovation both within Europe and around the world.

This event hopes to foster discussion around the principles of openness, including concepts like interoperability, consumer choice and open access, and how they contribute to a thriving European digital economy.

Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon will be our special guest and will share his ideas on the latest evolutions in technology, including AI, and the importance of embedding the principle of openness into policymaking.

The fireside chat will be followed by a panel session that will contextualise this notion of openness in practical terms, focusing on topics where policymaking can embrace open digital ecosystems. The conversation will also point to ideas of how openness can create a positive scenario for the European digital economy of 2029.

In-person attendance is by invite by the organiser only.
