The event will be webcast live from this page.

Please join the CSIS Strategic Technologies Program and the Europe, Russia, and Eurasia Program for a high-level discussion on transatlantic digital cooperation, featuring Věra Jourová, Vice President of the European Commission for Values and Transparency.

In September 2021, the first meeting of the new U.S.-EU Trade and Technology Council (TTC) took place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The TTC was borne out of growing recognition on both sides of the Atlantic that the challenges and opportunities of digitalization cannot be tackled alone—from next-generation networks and semiconductors to data privacy and digital monopolies.

The United States and European Union, as influential and like-minded global actors with innovative digital industries and huge influence in terms of digital regulation, are natural partners in ensuring the next phase of the digital revolution not only strengthens our economies, but also reflects our shared transatlantic values. Vice President Jourová will discuss how the United States and European Union can move beyond the current negotiating obstacles to forge a common path ahead. This conversation will be co-moderated by James A. Lewis, Senior Vice President for Strategic Technologies at CSIS, and Heather A. Conley, Senior Vice President for Europe, Eurasia, and the Arctic at CSIS.

This event is made possible by support from Microsoft.
