CERRE 2019 White Paper Conference

Date: 
24/09/2019 - 12:30 to 17:30
Venue: 
Le Bouche à Oreille, 11 rue Félix Hap, 1040 Brussels.
'A regulatory agenda for EU citizens:
digital, energy, mobility and cross-sector perspectives'

As the negotiations for the EU top jobs are in full swing and the new Parliament takes office, it is time to consider the enormous challenges ahead. What should be the priorities of the new EU leadership for the energy, telecom, digital, media and mobility sectors? How should they tackle these? Can robust regulation fix the EU and help it regain trust from its citizens?

This high-level conference will present and discuss the CERRE White Paper 2019-2024 and its recommendations to the incoming European Commission and Parliament.

This strategic agenda has been prepared in strict academic independence by more than 20 renowned academics. It gathers clear ambitions and actionable policy recommendations for the new European Commission and Parliament in the energy, digital, telecoms, media, platforms, and mobility sectors. They also provide input on overarching cross-sectoral issues.

The afternoon will start with our experts providing concrete policy recommendations for the energy, digital and mobility sectors in parallel sessions; followed by a  high-level dialogue to break the silos between those interconnected sectors with a cross-sector perspective. The conference will end with a roundtable investigating how robust regulation can help the EU regain trust from its citizens and reenchant its original values of respect for human dignity and human rights, freedom, democracy, equality and the rule of law. 

Join key actors from the digital, energy and mobility sectors, including representatives from industry, regulatory authorities, EU and national policymakers, as well as academic experts for a day of debate on the challenges and priorities for the next EU leadership and CERRE’s academics recommendations on how to address these.
