SHAPE THE FUTURE

On June 19, 2020, TNW and the Financial Times will bring together European policy-makers and business and technology leaders to discuss actionable solutions to tech policy challenges. This invitation-only gathering, which we call The Assembly, will take place in Amsterdam during TNW2020 – Europe’s leading tech festival.

THIS YEAR’S THEME

BALANCING REGULATION AND INNOVATION

This year's edition of The Assembly will provide a platform for policy-makers, tech giants and corporate leaders to find common ground. Currently, regulators lack the information they need to respond most effectively to the opportunities around innovation and the challenges around both the use of data and the dissemination of online content.

The Assembly will discuss in detail how business leaders and regulators can work together to build the most conducive environment for regulation and innovation to co-exist and contribute positively to society.

Key Questions: How should regulators tackle the transformative potential of artificial intelligence and 5G? How are both regulation and innovation being impacted by the geopolitical race for technology? How can innovation and regulation work together to produce a positive outcome for business and society?

What to expect?
