The Global Tech Panel is a forum for the open discussion and practical development of innovative solutions; it focuses specifically on the nexus between tech and common foreign and security policy. The ambition is to build a common understanding of the opportunities and challenges of the digital age, presenting practical suggestions to be shared with policy-makers at top level, all around the world. It also seeks to develop and coordinate concrete initiatives that the EU, tech companies, other tech stakeholders and partners can implement in coalition.
Exploring how Artificial Intelligence can deliver for human advancement and international peace is a key pillar of the work of the Global Tech Panel. A top and hot priority is to help develop and implement the principles of ethical and responsible innovation to govern the development of technologies used in weapons systems, and to ensure accountability and compliance with international law.
