U.S.-EU Information Society Dialogue

U.S.-EU Information Society Dialogue (ISD) and the TABC Digital Economy Workshop (DEW)

TABC hosts the annual Digital Economy Workshop (DEW) which is held in conjunction with the U.S.-EU government-to-government Information Society Dialogue (ISD). The ISD takes place once a year, is co-chaired by the U.S. State Department and the European Commission Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content & Technology (DG CONNECT) and involves discussions between the two governments on a range of digital issues. TABC’s DEW is the main stakeholder event for the ISD, bringing together business leaders and senior EU and U.S. government officials for direct exchanges on tech-related developments. The ISD and DEW alternate every year between Brussels and Washington.

Both the 14th annual ISD and DEW took place on June 28, 2016 in Washington, DC. The ISD covered a number of key topics, including ICT standards, connectivity, data flows, ICT-enabled innovation, and transatlantic collaboration across multilateral forums. The DEW provided a platform for stakeholder input on these topics as business practitioners, industry experts, and government officials examined the benefits and challenges surrounding the Internet of Things (IoT) and emerging technologies, cross-border issues in the global digital economy, and building the next generation of networks.
