techUK is launching a series of discussions on key digital regulation developments in London and Brussels, that will run once a month throughout 2021. The first one will focus on new initiatives on competition.
The European Commission and the UK’s Digital Markets Taskforce have recently proposed how they plan to regulate competition in digital markets.
The European Commission has proposed a Digital Markets Act which targets a specific list of ‘gatekeeper platforms’, whereas the UK Government is setting up a new Digital Markets Unit in the Competition and Markets Authority, to designate ‘strategic market status’ and operationalise some of the core elements of the UK’s pro-competitive regime.
As the UK and the EU continue to develop this legislation along similar timelines, we would like to invite you to join a virtual webinar organised jointly by techUK and CCIA on Thursday 25th February, 11am – 12pm GMT, to hear from an expert panel about the commonalities and differences of these two approaches.
Our panel will be made up of the following regulators, academics, and industry specialists:
- Daniel Gordon, Senior Director of Markets, Competition & Markets Authority;
- Thomas Kramler, Head of Unit, DG Competition, European Commission;
- Dr Liza Lovdahl Gormsen, Director of Competition Law, British Institute of International and Comparative Law;
- Kayvan Hazemi-Jebelli, Competition and Regulatory Counsel, Computer & Communications Industry Association;
- Sabina Ciofu, Head of EU and Trade Policy, techUK (moderator)
