About the Series

"The Digital Services Act Week" took place virtually between 30 June and 3 July, 2020 after being postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

Replays of the series' discussions are available on the event website.

Throughout the week, Forum Europe facilitated virtual discussions on topics including new ex-ante competition regulation, platform liability and regulatory insight, E-Commerce and liability exemptions, and harmful content such as fake news and misinformation.

The concluding session also saw a keynote speech from Margrethe Vestager, Executive Vice President of the European Commission.
