WHEN: Thursday 7 June 2018 15:00-17:00
WHERE: FTI Consulting, Avenue Marnix 23 1000 Brussels
Fulfilling the ambitious targets set by the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 will require new resources and new collaborations across sectors, but it will also require fresh thinking. Innovation, and in particular innovation in new digital technologies, will be essential. This is as true for the good governance and anti-corruption targets that are part of Goal 16 as they are for other goals. 

How can technologies, such secured electronic payments, cashless transactions and blockchain ensure greater transparency and accountability across the public and private sectors? Can big data and artificial intelligence provide new ways to detect fraud and prevent corruption? 

We will examine these questions and the EU’s role in incentivising deployment of these innovations as it prepares to deepen the so-called ‘Security Union’, expands the Digital Single Market, and includes more ambitious good governance clauses in trade and other agreements  with third countries.
