Positioning Europe as a trusted digital leader is one of the European Commission’s top priorities. With the COVID-19 outbreak, and potentially more crises of a similar nature in the future, this issue and more specifically the quest for digital sovereignty, are higher than ever on EU policymakers' agenda.

  • How does this pandemic affect Europe’s digital ambitions?
  • What impact will it have on Europe’s industrial strategy?
  • What are the risks, but also the opportunities for Europe and how can EU leaders address them?

Join this CERRE live-streamed debate with European Commission Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager and Pascal Lamy, former EU Trade Commissioner, former Director General of the WTO, and Honorary President of the Jacques Delors Institute.
