9 November 2017: SAVE THE DATE! Seminar on 'Responsibility and Digital Technology'' in Lyon, FR

A Seminar on 'Responsibility and Digital Technology' is organised by the Faculty of Law of UCLy and Trans Europe Experts. This event is part of the ELI French Hub.

A Seminar on ‘Responsibility and Digital Technology’, organised by the Law Faculty of UCLy and Trans Europe Experts, will take place in Lyon (France) on 9 November.
Given the impact that the rapid development of digital technologies has on all existing legal provisions, especially when it comes to questions of liability, these issues have to be re-evaluated. At the same time, new sets of rules above all in the field of protection of personal data have evolved and should be considered carefully. The question of liability will be examined with the help of two examples during the seminar: liability in case of an accident with self-driving vehicles and liability of the Data Protection Officer as a key person under Art 37 of the General Data Protection Regulation entering into force on May 25, 2018.
