Food for Thought: Europe’s “Hidden Treasures” - How should next Commission use them?
17:45 - 19:00
From contract law to corporate governance, competition law to digital privacy, anticorruption policies to free trade, Europe has set global standards on regulation and business practices. How can the continent leverage this strength? A stronger Europe at home also means the possibility of becoming regulatory leaders in key areas such as emerging digital technologies. A recent CEPS project inspired by Dutch entrepreneur Donald Kalff analyses ten such hidden European gems, and presents proposed future actions to leverage their potential for a more competitive and equitable continent. Following a brief introduction to the report’s main messages, session participants will debate how these proposals can meet their goals.
