Upcoming Webinar 16/12 – Dialogues on Digital Identity

Dialogues on Digital Identity Drivers of the Digital Transition: Data, Identity and Cybersecurity, by ELONtech, IoT Council and Next Generation Internet – NGI

You can register here.

By assembling the building blocks we want to achieve the ‘overtone’ which is creating an NGI attitude, a way of looking at the digital transition in Europe that coherently makes the key topics – Trustworthy Information Flows, Decentralized Power on the Internet, Personal Data Control, An Inclusive Internet, Competitive European Ecosystems and Ethical Internet Technology, Safer Online Environments and Sustainable and Climate-friendly Internet – actionable for local (city), regional, national and EU policy makers, guiding for technology enablers and ‘comforting’ to a larger audience, meaning we explain the fast developments in such a way as they remain close to everyday life, especially given the economic situation in many countries due to lockdowns and the role of technology in trends in work and employment.

Moderators: Rob van Kranenburg (NGI Forward) and Mantalena Kaili (Elontech)
