The MAPPING project consortium is looking forward to the next meeting of invited stakeholders, interested in debating the existing innovation policies, business models and legal framework related to three major, interrelated focus areas: Internet governance, Privacy, Intellectual property rights.

After the success of the First General Assembly in Hanover in September 2015, in the Prague 2016 General Assembly we expect the continuation of the dialogue with key experts and policy and decision makers, who are involved in research and innovation in the above mentioned areas within Europe’s political, social and economic context.  It will include panels and debates on a variety of interrelated topics, such as: existing and emerging business models as impacted by the General Data Protection Regulation, law enforcement and Intelligence agency perspectives; the interplay between privacy and intellectual property, critical infrastructures and challenges to freedom of expression. An important aim of the conference is to involve the stakeholders in discussions on how to take MAPPING forward.

Following recommendations from the participants of previous General Assemblies, the event in Prague will take place over three full days.
