Taking place on 16 June 2017
The Digital Assembly 2017 will take place on 15 and 16 June in Valletta, Malta. The Digital Assembly is an opportunity for stakeholders to debate, take stock and look ahead at how Europe and its partners around the world are preparing for this digital transformation.
The event starts at noon on 15 June. After a networking lunch, the event will kick off with a high-level opening ceremony and an international panel discussion. On Friday 16 June, there will be four thematic working sessions on key priorities. One of these priorities is the data economy, as data is considered to be the fuel of the new economy. This workshop is an opportunity to have your say on how to unleash the full potential of data for Europe. It is part of a structured dialogue with Member States and stakeholders following up on the proposals of the Communication on Building a European Data Economy which describes the potential of data and sets out ways in which to optimise access to and re-use of data for the benefit of the economy and society. The Assembly will conclude with a high-level closing ceremony.
