The Transatlantic ICT Forum is established as a platform to support policy debate and provide opinions and recommendations to transatlantic dialogues for ICT R&I cooperation between Europe and North America (US and Canada). The Forum focuses on three key thematic areas in ICT – funding mechanisms for ICT R&I, ICT policy and regulations and cybersecurity and it is composed by European, US and Canada’s experts in the subject matters. Currently, 38 experts are members of the Transatlantic ICT Forum. The Transatlantic ICT Forum Workshop is the first workshop to be held in Brussels on 16 -17 November, 2016. About 70 participants are expected to attend the event.
This two-day event will comprise a combination of informative panel session and interactive breakout sessions, which are both designed to spark conversations about transatlantic collaborations in ICT research and innovation. The goal is to create a dynamic environment for networking, business dialogues and policy debates between both sides of the Atlantic.
This workshop provides opportunities for ICT stakeholders to extend their reach and connections beyond their borders. It also contributes to an impactful and sustainable ICT platform where more and more transatlantic ICT partnerships are possible.
