The recordings of the 29th EEAC Annual Conference are now available

The 29th EEAC Annual Conference took place over three mornings from Wednesday 17th November to Friday 19th November. Over two hundred fifty experts, academics, council representatives and policy makers attended the conference which was virtually hosted from Barcelona.

The conference addressed the digital transformation within a European context and the issues and opportunities it raises for sustainable development. Experts shared their views upon many exciting opportunities that the digital transformation and artificial intelligence systems offer for sustainability, but also warned against both intended and unintended negative consequences that the ongoing digital transition could have on the ambition to achieve  a sustainable Europe by 2030.

The recordings of the three conference days can be found on the conference page. A written conference summary and cover letter presenting the key findings, conclusions and preliminary recommendations deriving from the 29th Annual Conference will follow in due time.
