2022 EU-US DEFENSE & FUTURE FORUM - The Delegation of the European Union to the United States, in partnership with the Atlantic Council’s Europe Center, hosted the EU-US Defense & Future Forum on June 22, 2022.
This year’s Forum combined two of the EU Delegation’s flagship events dedicated to furthering the dialogue on the transatlantic relationship: The second iteration of the EU-US Future Forum and the EU Defense Washington Forum, now in its 11th year.
Europe pushes ahead with setting new standards for the digital economy. Notably the recent agreements on the Digital Services Act (DSA) and the Digital Markets Act (DMA) are major milestones for how Europe wants to structure its digital economy that will carry with them implications for US tech and the transatlantic relationship.
How will actions on both sides of the Atlantic lead to greater economic resilience in key tech areas, including the response to the continuing supply chain crisis for key technology products and raw materials? Will US regulation match European ambitions on the digital economy? How can the EU and the United States cooperate in innovation through the Trade and Technology Council on key matters like chips, 5G technology, and digital infrastructure? Has the Russian war in Ukraine changed how the United States and the EU treat digital and tech policy, from supply chains to content regulation, and what can we expect from the DSA in terms of disinformation?
