The Tech and Industrial Dimensions of the EU Green Deal

22 June 2021 | 15:10- 16:30 CEST

As the European Commission has made clear, the EU’s industrial transition will also need to be a green one. From 5G to smart cities and intelligent transport, new technologies will play a key role in the EU’s ability to achieve its objective of becoming the world’s first climate-neutral continent by 2050 and thus to contribute to the Paris agreement’s goals. This new edition of the Forum Europe and Qualcomm Tech Policy Talks series will look at the interplay between innovation, green growth, and competition policies and how they can be advanced to support the industrial and green transitions of Europe’s economies and society.

Catch up on past sessions below:

Lively discussion on the conditions needed to advance the digital transition in Europe. We have what it takes in order to become a digital leader, but it is high time to step up our game.

Liesje Schreinemacher, Member, European Parliament

When we speak about AI we should not only focus on the ethical requirements but also on the disruptive effects it has on any industry. We need agile policymaking, which enables innovation, data access & cooperation across sectors, so we reap the benefits of technology.

Eva Maydell, Member, European Parliament

Skills and high level software engineering, connectivity (5G and Fibre) and Data flow across European Union for artificial intelligence, here are my main suggestions for innovations! EU must invest into R&D and European Research Area and happy to do so in line with European Commission.

Miapetra Kumpula-Natri, Member, European Parliament

I liked the diverse speaker positions which provided a good overview of the challenges and possible solutions.
