Brussels Privacy Hub to hold soon its Summer Academy 2022

  • April 11, 2022

In 2 months, the Brussels Privacy Hub is going to hold the 2022 edition of its Summer Academy for Global Privacy Law. This year, the Summer Academy's title will be Engineering Data Regulation(s) in an Age of Reform, and will focus on some of the most imporant proposals for data governance reform in the EU, such as the Artificial Intelligence Act, the Digital Markets Act, the Digital Services Act, the Data Governance Act, and the revised NIS Directive.

Each regulatory text will first be placed within its proper background and ecosystem, before analysing its regulatory approach and (still draft) provisions. Particular attention will be paid to its relationship with specific aspects of the EU data protection law, particularly with the General Data Protection Regulation.

The programme includes top level speakers such Wojciech Wiewiórowski (European Data Protection Supervisor), Vagelis Papakonstantinou (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), Paul De Hert (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), and many others.

The 2022 Summer Academy will take place in a hybrid format, both online and on-site. In the morning, participants will attend lectures by selected speakers including internationally recognised academics, policy makers, data protection authorities, and civil society representatives. In the afternoon, they will engage in interactive sessions and teamwork allowing them to further connect regardless of their location.

People interested to attend the school can get more information on the Summer Academy's website or contact Lina Jasmontaite.

The deadline for registration is 25 April 2022.
