Dear Supporter,

On behalf of the Progressive Policy Institute, the Center for European Studies, and the European Privacy Association, we would like to invite you to attend a transatlantic dialogue on the rise of the “data-driven economy” and Internet governance. Featuring prominent U.S. and European political and business leaders, as well as economists and policy experts, this conversation will take place Oct. 10-12, 2012 at John Cabot University in Rome, Italy.

The growing volume of cross-border trade in digital information is becoming an increasingly important driver of economic innovation and growth, as well as a key component of international trade. This reality raises a host of new and complex questions about the “rules of the road” that should govern data storage, security and privacy, and, ultimately, the Internet itself.

The conference will grapple with three key questions: 1) How is the data boom driving economic growth in the United States and Europe?; 2) What are the economic consequences of privacy regulations, and can Americans and Europeans find compatible approaches to privacy? and, 3) How can policy-makers best balance the competing imperatives of Internet freedom and responsible internet governance?

Tickets are available on our website and if you have any questions or need any additional details please contact us at rome2012@ppionline.org or 001 202 525 3926.
