In this conference, we bring you the highlights of our work on the governance of digital platforms, over the past two years. We are planning an interactive session with politicians and policymakers on the implementation of the Digital Services Act and the European Media Freedom Act. We will address the future of work in the platform society and discuss ownership transparency and European identity in the digital age. Furthermore, the role of public broadcasters and public values in the age of platforms will be discussed. Not only looking at Europe, we also present and evaluate global digital innovation paradigms.
