Positioning Europe as a trusted digital leader is one of the European Commission’s top priorities. With the COVID-19 outbreak, the quest for digital sovereignty is higher than ever on EU policymakers' agenda. How may the COVID-19 pandemic affect Europe’s digital ambitions? What risks and opportunities for Europe? 

We hosted an online debate with European Commission Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager and Pascal Lamy, former EU Trade Commissioner, former Director General of the WTO, and Honorary President of the Jacques Delors Institute.
