The Only Way is App
How to make Europe more attractive to innovative companies.
The Digital Economy is one of the key priorities of the ALDE Group in the European Parliament. How can we increase the attractiveness of innovative companies in the EU? How can we boost growth and job creation in the new "App economy"?
This conference will allow key stakeholders from the digital economy, as well as policymakers, to discuss the possibilities for making Europe count. The number of "Apps" in today's economy is growing, but it is essential to understand what kind of regulation, if any, the European institutions need to implement in order to meet the needs of innovative applications and to allow this sector to continue to flourish in Europe.
