Workshop and Webinar

Callaghan Innovation is delighted to connect you with European technology and research specialist, Dr Erich Prem, who will talk you through the European Digital Single Market, new Data Protection rules and explore the opportunities and impacts for New Zealand businesses arising from Europe’s changing regulatory environment.

Data is the currency of today's digital economy and data protection is at the heart of the move to a digital single market. The European Data Protection Reform aims to build a strong basis to help Europe make better use of innovative digital services like big data and cloud computing.

Kiwi companies at the forefront of innovative digital product development will be impacted by new regulations as they grow their global offer.

If you are exporting digital products or services to Europe, then this is a must attend event.

From the end of geo-blocking to the right to explanation on algorithmic decision-making, new copyright framework and VAT rules, Dr Prem will share policies that change the playing field for companies around the world, including EU companies’ international partners and businesses exporting digital products and services to the region.
