Description

“America is back” and Europe is relieved in the face of an improving transatlantic relation. Yet, hurdles to cooperation remain. In particular, the regulation of “Big Tech'' is a major challenge. For this, our policy-competition asks the next generation of leaders to articulate their vision on how Europe and the US can cooperate to achieve a new sustainable equilibrium regarding the regulation of Big Tech companies. From the perspective of a policy expert, you are asked to advise a government or international organization on how to deal with “Tech Titans”.

The three best policy memos will have a chance at real impact: You present your vision and implementation-steps in a short pitch to top government and international organizations representatives.

In addition to the recognition for the winning proposal, all participants will gain important skills such as the ability to analyze issues in their broader economic, social and political contexts while exploring the potential regulatory mechanisms to affect change and how to write policy memos posed by “Tech Titans” such as Apple, Amazon, Google, or Facebook within the context of transatlantic cooperation.
