This webinar will put a particular spotlight on the role of communication, dissemination and exploitation in maximising the impact of Horizon 2020 projects. It aims to clarify the terminology by illustrating the differences between the three concepts, and to point out the areas they have in common.

The Bavarian State Minister for Digital Affairs, DIGITALEUROPE and Bitkom will hold a panel debate on the newly presented European Digital Strategy.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is already capable of creating literary, artistic and musical works as well as technical inventions. As machines have quickly learned to mimic human creativity and inventiveness, the intellectual property (IP) world has entered into AI-driven unchartered territory. Are and should AI-created works and inventions be protected by copyright and patents? How do we answer the question of authorship, inventorship and ownership?
The webinar will then shift to the questions of whether and to what extent the use of data fed into the system, for example to train the algorithms, may amount to copyright or patent infringement, or may in certain circumstances be exempted under fair use, fair dealing, private use or similar doctrines. Possible legal regimes dealing with machine produced works and inventions which are alternatives to copyright and patent protection, including public domain scenarios and sui generis systems, will be examined.
During its February Plenary Session, the EDPB adopted documents concerning the EDPB Contribution to the evaluation of the GDPR under Article 97, Guidelines on Articles 46 (2) (a) and 46 (3) (b) for transfers of personal data between EEA and non-EEA public authorities and bodies and a Statement on privacy implications of mergers.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has implications for the work of international organisations, which raises fundamental questions about the relationship between EU law and public international law. Bringing together data protection experts and prominent experts from the worlds of both EU law and international law, this workshop will examine legal issues concerning the impact of the GDPR on international organisations.
Co-Organised by Maastricht University (European Centre on Privacy and Cybersecurity) – Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB/Brussels Privacy Hub) – K.U. Leuven (Institute for European Law).

“We have to unleash the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI).” This is one of the main findings of the #AI4SMEs conference organised by EASME and DG GROW on 18-19 February. At the event, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) gathered with policy-makers and technology stakeholders to discuss the potential of AI and its possible applications for SMEs.
This note offers links to recent commentaries, studies and reports from international think tanks on AI and related issues.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is usually understood as the ability for a machine to display human-like capabilities such as reasoning, learning, planning and creativity. The ‘Holy Grail’ for many governments and companies seeking to benefit from the digital revolution, the first to invent and apply true AI could achieve an enormous advantage in economic and military terms. However, there are serious ethical implications in such potential developments. Many aspects of AI have already been applied since the 2000s in machines with sufficiently fast processing speeds, equipped with learning techniques and fed large amounts of data. Current versions of AI help to drive cars, beat chess champions, and offer excellent medical diagnostics, to take a few examples.
