We live in digital times and regulating for privacy is essential. Trust and innovation are the pillars of a better and more prosperous society.

Come join us for an exclusive dialogue between those who make the rules and those who develop products and services on September 6th, from 12.00 to 13.30h, at the Members Salon of the European Parliament.

The expert panel will be co-hosted by MEPs Marju Lauristin (S&D), Peter Kouroumbashev (S&D) and Daniel Dalton (ECR).

We will bring together data protection officers, product and service developers and lawmakers for an open discussion on values, technology, growth and innovation. We will debate, among others, the new e-Privacy Regulation and its interplay with existing law, including the General Data Protection Regulation.

The discussion will be animated by:

  • the Rapporteur and Shadow Rapporteurs on ‘Respect for private life and the protection of personal data in electronic communications’ 2017/0003(COD)
  • Key Perm Reps
  • Despina Spanou, Director, Directorate H – Digital Society, Trust and Cybersecurity, DG Connect, European Commission
