Digital Services & Markets: Towards an open and competitive digital space for SMEs

Home » Events » Digital Services & Markets: Towards an open and competitive digital space for SMEs

On the 15 December 2020, the European Commission published two pieces of legislation that will update the rules for digital companies in Europe: a Digital Services and a Digital Markets Act, collectively known as the Digital Services Act package. In a nutshell, the Digital Services Act (DSA) focuses on illegal content. On the other hand, the Digital Markets Act (DMA) promises to tackle the dominance of large gatekeeper platforms like Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft (GAFAM).

During this DIGITAL SME Live episode, we will discuss solutions for a fair and competitive digital ecosystem. This will ultimately allow SMEs and a wider audience to gain first-hand insights about the proposals of the Digital Services Act package, which may substantially shape digital markets in the years to come.

There are two ways in which you can participate:

  1. Join the webinar to get a chance to ask your questions in person and interact with the experts!
  2. Follow the live-stream via our YouTube, Twitter, or Facebook pages.
