Against the backdrop of the release of the European Commission’s two-year review of the GDPR now delayed until June, key policymakers and experts joined this virtual event to take stock of the benefits the regulation has unleashed, share their views on the gaps that remain to be addressed, and discuss how they have been impacted by the regulation in the past two years. The session also asked how outstanding challenges and concerns around compliance and enforcement alignment across Member States can be best addressed and will debate issues around the capacity and resilience of the GDPR in facing continuous development of new data-driven innovations. In the context of the current health crisis relating to the Covid-19 outbreak, speakers also examined areas of the regulation that may already need rethinking to enable Europe to fully foster the benefits that data-enabled innovation can bring to our society.

An interactive discussion and networking session – audience members will have the chance to take the floor and give their thoughts on the discussions that have taken place in the previous panel.
Forum Europe are proud to present ‘Under the Spotlight…’ – a strategic series of virtual EU policy events focussing on a range of key policy files and topics across different subject areas.
Working alongside thought-leaders and policymakers, each event will put a specific area ‘under the spotlight’ – providing a platform for a detailed discussion on the policy issues involved. By bringing together key stakeholders in this way, the aim of the series is to support transparency and inclusion in the policymaking process in a format that is accessible to all.
