MIT’s Internet Policy Research Initiative (IPRI) is proud to host the European Commission Vice President Andrus Ansip and U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker for an armchair discussion to talk about the most important public policy and economic issues confronting the Internet and the broader digital economy – including issues such as security, privacy, free expression, intellectual property, and the “Internet of things”. The two leaders will also explore how the US and Europe can make common cause towards a shared vision of a free and open Internet worldwide – and the challenges it faces.
