EU Digital Challenges – Policy Briefings

“Artificial Intelligence: Building the European Way” and “Cybersecurity: is European governance possible?”


For the first time, three European think tanks joined forces to reflect upon the EU digital technologies strategy: Renaissance Numérique, EuropaNova, and Das Progressive Zentrum. As a concrete realization of this partnership, the think tanks launched a common series of conferences in both France and Germany: “EU Digital Challenges”. Read here two policy briefings from the project.

Policy Brief by Jennyfer Chrétien (General Delegate of Renaissance Numérique)

Genuine ambitions are out there: The European Commission has officially declared it a high priority. Jennyfer Chrétien compares the European approach with China’ and the USA’s – and shows why the EU needs to develop a transversal strategy.
