This will be followed by a panel moderated by Allen&Overy with Luxtrust and CNPD to take the discussion further in the context of a practical use case, especially with regard to GDPR.

The event is organised by Infrachain a.s.b.l. and is for anyone interested in EU law, the relationship between law, innovation and technology, and technology governance.
The presentation will be followed by a networking drink sponsored by Allen&Overy.
