How can the EU achieve its goals on digital sovereignty against the backdrop of increasing geopolitical competition? Our panel will delve into data protection, risks emanating from dependence on foreign technology and lack of private investment in AI as well as securing European values and principles.

This is the first of a series of events jointly organised by the European Movement International and the European Council on Foreign Relations, exploring the challenges the European Union is facing.

The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session, giving attendees the opportunity to engage in the debate.
