This CERRE Digital Seminar will consider two topics at the centre of policy debates on Europe’s Digital Agenda: the regulation of the use of data and the principle of neutrality in the digital value chain.

The countdown to the enforcement of the General Data Protection Regulation is well underway. However, this is only one piece of the puzzle that is the governance of data in a connected society. The first session of this seminar will consider a number of important issues in the regulation of the use of data and data markets in Europe, including: the GDPR, the impact of data portability, trade in personal and non-personal data, the implications for competition, and the need for future regulation.

The second topic for discussion is becoming increasingly prominent at all levels of the digital value chain: the principle of neutrality. From the use of zero-rating by internet service providers, to the possibility of device manufacturers and operating systems limiting internet openness, to the business practices of internet platforms, neutrality is a keenly debated concept.

The second session will begin with keynote speeches on specific aspects of the neutrality debate from Sébastien Soriano (President, Arcep) and Johannes Gungl (President RTR and BEREC Chair 2018), along with the presentation of a new CERRE report on zero-rating practices. These speeches will be followed by a high-level discussion involving regulators, European policy-makers, telecoms operators, internet platforms and device manufacturers.

Register now and join us for a fascinating afternoon of discussion and debate.

This event is reserved for CERRE members' representatives and a limited number of non-members.
