How will our digital future look like? In 2018, the European Office of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, ZVEI, Google and Siemens will try to answer this question in a series of high-level political events in Brussels under the slogan “Think Digital!”, bringing together representatives from the European Institutions, think tanks, research institutions, civil society and the private sector.

The third workshop of “Think Digital!” 2018 will focus on “Data Economies Across the Globe” and take place on September 05, 2018, 08:00h, at the European Parliament. Today, innovation is driven by data. How personal and non-personal data is handled tells us a lot about how we manage digitisation as a macro-trend. But data economies have developed differently across regions, economies and societies. This "Think Digital!” workshop will explore how different mind-sets, values, cultural backgrounds, political systems and bargaining processes shape the approach towards data. As our speakers, we welcome: Eva Maydell (Member of the European Parliament), Radu Surdeanu (Senior Director Digital Economy, Siemens Government Affairs EU), Claudia Selli (Chair, AmCham EU Digital Economy Committee) and Antoine Larpin (Vice-Chair of Digital Committee, Japan Business Council in Europe).
