On Monday 6 May 2019, the Department of European Political and Governance Studies welcomes European Commissioner for Transport Violeta BULC and European Commissioner for Competition Margrethe VESTAGER.

Digitisation is changing our society on all levels: social, industrial, regulatory, conceptual and philosophical. It brings about new technologies, business and social models. It poses challenges and opportunities for citizens, businesses as well as regulators. We need to be ready to take a fresh look at our rules in all areas to make sure they are up to date and relevant. We need to ensure that we get the best out of the new technologies while still preserving a level playing field and fair competition.

The two Commissioners will intervene on this and more during their Citizen's Dialogue on "The EU and the 4th industrial (r)evolution: Opportunities, challenges, and blind spots". Following their speeches, the debate will be opened for a Q&A session.

After the conference, participants are invited to join for a wine and snacks reception in the foyer.

The event is open to students from all departments and to the public, but registration is required before Sunday, 5 May 2019.
