Soevereiniteit en Digitale Autonomie

February 25th 2021 - 12:18

De Europese afhankelijkheid van buitenlandse technologie heeft tot een discussie over soevereiniteit en digitale autonomie geleid, waarin meerdere invalshoeken aan bod komen: rechtsbescherming, veiligheid, onderwijs en economie.

Terwijl deze discussie enthousiast in Brussel werd gevoerd, leek het debat in Nederland te ontbreken. Daarom hebben het Den Haag Centrum voor Strategische Studies (HCSS) en TNO in januari 2021 een workshop georganiseerd met experts uit het bedrijfsleven, academici en de overheid om deze discussie aan te gaan. De bevindingen en aanbevelingen van die workshop worden in dit rapport uitgebreid uitgelegd.
