The next generation of digital innovations is expected to be more systemic in nature, but they will also be subject to more regulated markets. This will be a major factor in a geopolitical tug-of-war between the US, China and the EU.
Tim Rühlig at the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) will discuss the rising tension between market and government with respect to the strategic importance and current power struggles related to technical standards.
- Why are technical standards of strategic importance for innovation?
- Should EU act to be a global standard setter?
- Are Swedish actors slow in adapting to tug-of-war in standard setting?
This is the first seminar in a series building on the contributions in SEF Dialogues 2022: Rethinking boundaries and revisiting borders
