Digitisation will bring new opportunities for European citizens in the form of new skills, jobs and economic growth.

At the same time, digitisation is disrupting traditional policy processes and business models.

Because of this, new laws will need to be developed primarily at EU level, in order to deal with the cross border nature of the digital ecosystem and economy.  The focus of the discussion will be on social and regional inequalities of the new era of digitisation.
