Webinar: The Role of Technology in Ensuring the Future of Free Movement

EEMA is hosting a virtual panel debate on the future of free movement post pandemic on Tuesday 29th June (11.00 to 12.15 CET). The event will include a presentation from Bart Preneel, a Professor at KU Leuven and part of the team that developed Belgium’s coronavirus tracing smartphone app – Coronalert.

The Post Covid-19 – Ensuring the Future of Free Movement webinar will consider the role technology has to play in the safe reopening of society. Chair of EEMA, Jon Shamah, states: “The pandemic has forced countries to close their borders. Now, with many nations beginning to roadmap a cautious re-opening, driven by accelerating vaccines programs, we look at the role technology has play post pandemic, in areas such as contact and proximity tracing, digital certificates and vaccine passports.”

The panel debate is the opening session of EEMA’s 34th Annual Conference ‘Securing Trust in the New Digital Reality’ which this year will take place as a series of six free-to-attend webinars. The session will be Chaired by Steve Pannifer, COO of Consult Hyperion, who will be joined by Professor Bart Preneel, Andy Tobin, Vice President of Delivery at Evernym and Viky Manaila, Trust Services Director at Intesi Group SpA.

Last year the EEMA Annual Conference attracted 450 industry leaders from 40 countries. This year the theme ‘Securing Trust in the New Digital Reality’ will take place in a series of six webinars from 29th June 2021 till 1st July 2021.
