In conjunction with the European agenda for the collaborative economy presented by the European Commission in June, we are delighted to welcome Kristian Hedberg, Deputy Head of Cabinet to Commissioner Bieńkowska. The agenda offers guidance aimed at supporting consumers, businesses and public authorities to engage confidently in the collaborative economy.

Mr. Hedberg will provide a short keynote speech which will be followed by a moderated Q&A session.
