Digitalisation will play a central role in recovering from the crisis wrought by COVID-19. Already during the crisis, digital solutions, including enabling people to work and learn remotely, helped reduce the adverse impact of the pandemic and helped many businesses to stay open. COVID-19 has shown that digital technologies are essential to the functioning of today’s global economy and underline their transformational potential. But digital technologies are also generating new policy issues. Policy makers in Japan and the EU need to ensure that the infrastructure, the connectivity and the regulations are in place to respond to the coronavirus and to keep people active and safe online. In this webinar, European and Japanese experts will share views about the role of digitalisation for the recovery and how they can contribute to a green recovery by addressing topics such as data governance and privacy, digital innovation or the interoperability of digital services between the EU and Japan.
The webinar will be in Japanese and English (simultaneous interpretation will be provided). Please be aware that the time and date of the webinar might change due to speakers’ availability. After your registration, you will be informed if there is any change.
