The seventh edition of the Brussels Privacy Symposium will take place on Tuesday, 14 November 2023, jointly presented by the Brussels Privacy Hub of Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF). This year’s topic is “Understanding the EU Data Strategy Architecture: Common Threads – Points of Junction – Incongruities”.
The Brussels Privacy Symposium is a global convening of practical, applicable, substantive privacy research and scholarship, bringing together policymakers, academic researchers, civil society and industry representatives. This year’s program will focus on how the EU data strategy package overlaps, interacts, supports or creates tension with provisions within the GDPR. More specifically, the Symposium will provide a forum for in-depth discussions on key principles of the upcoming EU AI Act, the Digital Services Act (DSA), the Digital Markets Act (DMA), in addition to other relevant acts from the Data Strategy package, and their interaction(s) with the existing personal data protection framework created by the GDPR.
This event will be held in live, in-person-only format.
