EU Digital Assembly 2022: A closer look into the digital future

The Digital Assembly 2022 is co-organised by the European Commission and the French Presidency. It will focus in particular on issues related to EU sovereignty and autonomy.

In an increasingly uncertain world, Europe is facing profound questions about how it should position itself to secure its values, address societal challenges effectively, and ensure prosperity and opportunity for our citizens. Technology has proven it can keep our societies and economies going in the most difficult of circumstances, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, whilst holding the promise of major breakthroughs in areas such as personalised health care, smart energy and mobility and precision agriculture, which help tackling climate change. However, increasing reliance on technology has also underscored Europe’s dependencies on other regions for raw materials, energy, and crucial components.

These are some of the key questions that the Digital Assembly 2022 conference will dig into and try to answer.

This two-day event, co-organised by the European Commission and the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union, will be held on 21 and 22 June 2022, online and in Toulouse.

The starting point of the conference will be four workshops, followed by the plenary session, which will feature a range of high-level and inspirational speakers from the digital sector, policy makers, and academia.

The full “Digital Assembly 2022” programme is below. More details on topics and speakers will follow.

Conclusions on the European Missions (Permanent Representation of France to the EU)
Introducing the TRAMI project (Joanneum Research, Austria)
