French Hub Seminar on Responsibility and Digital Technology in Lyon


On 9 November 2017, a Seminar on Responsibility and Digital Technology organised by the Faculty of Law of Catholic University of Lyon (UCLy), Trans Europe Experts (TEE) and ELI French Hub took place in Lyon.

Given the impact that the rapid development of digital technologies has on all existing legal provisions, the question of liability was examined from two angles: liability in the case of an accident with self-driving vehicles and liability of a Data Protection Officer as a key person under Art 37 of the General Data Protection Regulation which enters into force on 25 May 2018. Among the panellists was ELI Vice-President Sjef van Erp, who gave a presentation on ELI. The event attracted many experts in this field. It inspired lively debate on these topical questions.
