Jesus College, Oxford
Fide Foundation is a leading think tank in the legal and economics fields. It is based in Madrid. Its membership is composed of leading professionals from the private and public sectors in Spain and beyond. In September 2018, FIDE’s international committee began to steer work on its inaugural congress to be held at Jesus College, Oxford University, in September 2019.

The objective of this congress is to bring together a group of professionals with extensive experience in the subject so that, from different perspectives, drawing on areas of knowledge and expertise from a number of countries, it will be possible to discuss and analyse the issues that have been detailed in the program. Ultimately our aim is to articulate a set of conclusions and recommendations that are intended to be published and disseminated with a view to their consideration by the competent authorities.

With this purpose in mind, we’ll hold a series of presentations, panel discussions, debates, and working sessions. Working Groups will be used to work on the different topics in order to construct a set of conclusions and proposals about the subjects discussed.

Meetings on these subjects are being held in Madrid throughout the 2018/19 academic year leading up to this Congress. The emerging thinking flowing from these groups will be shared in advance and analysed at the congress.

The dates of the Congress are 16-18 September 2019.

The congress will focus on the analysis of the challenges and needs of the European regulatory environment in the face of technological advances in Artificial Intelligence and the digital economy, the opportunities which they offer and the risks which they entail. The Congress will seek to establish its work programme in an inter-state context, taking into account the need for inter-state action where necessary, consistent with the EU's key concepts of subsidiarity and proportionality. The overall economic context is the starting point for this rigorous analysis.

To this end, the following thematic blocks have been defined:

• The Congress will begin with two scene setting discussions. One discussion will cover the state of the Brexit negotiations and, in that regard, the UK domestic legislative framework which applies. The other discussion will cover the digital economy and its contribution to economic growth.
• The Congress will then focus on (i) scientific advances in the digital world and the pace of change; and (ii) the economic opportunities which those advances will bring, sector by sector; yet the pace of change will bring risks to the broader public interest. In response, a number of balancing factors will have to be addressed. The Congress will address a selection of those factors.

• By way of example, in respect of financial investment in the tech sector and more widely, they will involve consideration of corporate governance factors, such as the need for socially responsible investing. By way of further illustration, the Congress will focus on how far the digital economy will need to be regulated cross border to protect privacy; to safeguard the consumer; to ensure security and commercial confidentiality; and to preserve fair competition and a level playing field.

Meantime, while the public authorities grapple with the issues, there exists a policy vacuum. How has the Court of Justice of the EU developed its jurisprudence in the absence of policy clarity.

As a part of this regulation, there is a clear challenge for the OECD and the EC for creating new rules of how to tax highly digitalized models and in general the increased digitalization of the economy.

• The Congress will aim to adopt an analytical approach to the assessment of the opportunities and risks; it will discuss how to balance the different interests involved; and it will make recommendations accordingly.
