05: The end of IT-innovation – the growth opportunity for Europe?

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

IT innovations are limited to achieving attributes like “faster, better, easier and cheaper”. Societies are changing, and the ways of communications are being adapted to the new facts of life. Communities are the ones pushing the change via the worldwide global net. New worlds arise with new rules that are outside the legal framework. But do they also bring new growth? Does globalization make us even more dependent on licensers? By existing licensing models, do we finance growth only for markets outside of Europe? Copyright law will become part of the economic conflict between traditional and emerging economic powers. How and by what means can the European markets grow? Is open source the chance for Europe to regain a foothold in this competition? Confidence in the traditional strengths of Europe may be of help here, growing from branches in which Europe is leading the pack. We will deal with these and many other questions in our working group.
