  Add to Calendar 2020-01-20 17:30 2020-01-20 18:30 Europe/Paris Public roundtable - Digital society in the age of great powers competition

The progressing reliance on digital platforms for delivery of key governmental functions and services has direct impact on the well-being of citizens – the way they communicate, commute to work, or benefit from public services. With the advent of smart cities, local authorities are often the first line of defence against digital risks and the victims of malicious activities against the energy, transportation or communication infrastructure. The cascading effects of digital risks from the local level to regional, national and global calls for comprehensive action across all levels of government.

This public roundtable discusses the distribution of responsibilities and how such cooperation works in practice. What are the existing challenges and where is the room for improvement?

The event, hosted by the municipality of Florence, is co-organised by the EU Cyber Direct Project (funded by the European Union) and the School of Transnational Governance (European University Institute).
