EPRS Briefing: Digital challenges for Europe [What Think Tanks are thinking]

The rapid development of digital technologies is posing a challenge to the European Union, spurring initiatives to catch up with the US and China in the area, notably in the context of the digital single market. Among the dilemmas are how to reconcile Europe’s sensitivity towards protecting private data with the need to use them in many algorithms, and ensure that automation and artificial intelligence strengthen rather than weaken labour market participation. This note offers links to a series of some recent commentaries and reports from major international think tanks and research institutes on digital challenges. Many earlier papers on the issue can be found in a previous item in the series, published in July 2018. Many reports on cybersecurity are available in a publication from October 2018.

Press Release: Upcoming special report on the EU’s centrally managed interventions for venture capital

On Thursday 24 October 2019, the European Court of Auditors (ECA) will publish a special report on the EU’s centrally managed interventions for venture capital. The auditors examined six venture capital interventions the European Commission set up since 1998 in the area of enterprise, industry and research, including the EU guarantee for EFSI’s SME window. They assessed whether the Commission made good use of its instruments, whether the European Investment Fund (EIF) – which manages the EU-backed venture capital interventions on behalf of the Commission – implemented them properly and whether they mobilised funds from public and private investors.

Event: A New Industrial Strategy in a Time of Global Rivalry (Brussels, 12 November 2019)

“A plan for a future-ready economy” is how Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen described her vision for a future industrial strategy. But what would that look like? The third edition of Equinor’s “Energise Your Day” event series will bring together decision-makers and opinion leaders from incumbent and disruptive industries as well as the academia, for an exchange about the revival of industrial strategies.

The event will explore how the EU can build on its strengths to remain globally competitive while avoiding technological dependence. Speakers will discuss whether a concerted effort toward a low-carbon industry can be triggered – and what else is needed for the European industry to thrive in the long-term.

Event: Brazil and the EU: Indigenous Rights, Imported Deforestation and Climate (Brussels, 13 November 2019)

This event will shed light upon the links between deforestation of the Amazon rainforest, European imports, human rights violations and the current situation of indigenous peoples in Brazil. Arguing that the EU-Mercosur trade agreement in its current form will only aggravate the situation and that the EU doesn’t have any tool in place to ensure that its agricultural imports do not cause deforestation, the panellists will provide recommendations to improve conditions for both indigenous peoples and the climate.
