Tech-Talk on the Digital Serivce Act #FESTechTalk

The FES Tech-Talks - initiated by the Competence Centre on the Future of Work of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung - aim to explain current, often complex, topics relating to digitalisation and the Future of Work.

This event is being devoted to the Digital Service Act. The Digital Services Act (DSA) constitutes the biggest legislative reform in the history of the EU digital economy. In order for Europe to be ready for the digital age, the European Commission is proposing a disruptive attempt to regulate tech giants like Google, Facebook or Amazon by imposing obligations on digital service providers, with the focus being on four principles: transparency, empowering users, risk management and industry cooperation. The DSA lays down EU-wide obligations and is to apply to all digital services that connect consumers to goods, services or content.

With this Tech-Talk on the Digital Service Act we would like – together with Athina Angeliki Tsitsou, (European Commission), Tiemo Wölken (MEP) and Aída Ponce del Castillo (ETUI) - to shed light on what the DSA is exactly and how it will affect the EU digital economy in the future.
