16:00 - 17:00 CET

SMEs, competition experts and regulators, and now an increasing number of EU Member States are calling for the forthcoming EU Digital Markets Act to include up-front interoperability requirements for the largest digital platforms. Interoperability can ensure real choice, fairness and contestability for businesses and consumers in platform markets.

OpenForum Academy invites you to a discussion between leading legal and technical experts, who will outline the key components of interoperability in the context of competition regulation, as well as the relationship between interoperability and data protection.
