Governance and Regulation of Emerging Technologies

Conférence La Chaire Débat

,   -
Château de Chantilly

This conference is closed to the public

Immersive technologies, AI, blockchain, as well as genomics, biotechnologies, and other emerging technologies are outpacing regulation, disrupting traditional business models, and defying institutional and administrative boundaries, at national and international levels. The multifaceted issues and challenges brought by the 4th industrial revolution pose new governance challenges for policymakers and regulators and raise new ethical concerns for innovators and users. 

Besides the characterization of the specific challenges and risks posed by each emerging technology, the identification of their existing or anticipated applications, and the analysis of the (innovative) business models and of the triggered markets, emerging technologies might call for the development of common governance and regulation principles, which might be informed by the study of different present and past experiences. 

This academic workshop will shed new light on the major challenges to be addressed when attempting to regulate emerging technologies. The contributions will also explore new approaches to steer innovation processes, combining proactive and reactive procedures. These approaches should certainly rely on a multiplicity of ‘levers’ (command and control, competition policy, user protection, public procurement, standardization, etc.), the building of multistakeholder governance frameworks in various formats, and the design of cooperation and coordination mechanisms at the sectoral, national, and supranational levels.
