DIPP - The Importance of openness for sustainable knowledge socieet

Institutional and Political Issues
Date: Wednesday, 27 September 2017 08:30 - 10:30

Venue: DIGITALEUROPE, Brussels  |  City: Brussel, Belgium

The European University Association and DIGITALEUROPE would like to invite you to their next Digital in Practice Program on:

‘The importance of openness for sustainable knowledge societies’

The idea of an open global economy is under attack. For decades, there has been wide consensus that an open, rules-based, international order would create wide-spread prosperity and ensure progress. And it did, to a point. Supranational institutions like the EU or multilateral organisations like the WTO bear witness to the amazing accomplishments resulting from tearing down barriers. Now, bilateralism and even protectionism are gaining currency across the world. It is therefore vital to remind ourselves why openness is important for business and civil society alike, and to reinforce the arguments why we need an open world to sustain our knowledge-powered societies.

This breakfast event will present concrete examples of the deep international dynamics that are at the basis of two fundamental sectors, the digital technology industry and the university sector. The aim is to stimulate a discussion and awareness about tangible benefits of an open world to the knowledge society at large. It will also be a unique possibility for cross-sector networking and dialogue for anyone interested in innovation, technology, and the role of knowledge in society.

The event will be held as a moderated panel discussion.

Speakers:
Alexa Joyce, Director Education Policy, Teaching and Learning, Microsoft
Paul Ayris Pro-Vice-Provost (UCL Library Services), University College London
Brando Benifei, Member of the European Parliament
Peter A. Wieringa, Vice-rector, Delft University of Technology

Introduction:
Thomas Jørgensen, Senior Policy Coordinator, European University Association (EUA)

Moderator:
Cecilia Bonefeld-Dahl, Director General of DIGITALEUROPE

The event will take place at DIGITALEUROPE’s offices, (14 Rue de la Science , 1040, Brussels) on September 27 at 8:30 AM – 10:30.
