Transatlantic Digital Debate Participants, GPPi/New America

The Transatlantic Digital Debates (TDD) is a joint initiative of the Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi) and New America that brings together young professionals from Germany and the United States to work on the key challenges at the intersection of technology and policy. We are seeking 18 participants from civil society, academia, politics, media and business who are willing to engage with and challenge each other’s ideas concerning the societal implications of technological change. Fellows must be 35 years of age or younger, with three years of professional experience. The fellows will have the opportunity to discuss their ideas with leading experts and practitioners from different sectors. At the end of the program, they will have gained a broader understanding of the pressing issues defining transatlantic relations in the coming years as well as new ideas for how to tackle the respective challenges. We hope that our fellows will form a strong network of future decision-makers in the US and Germany. Over the course of 2018, the fellows will meet for two dialogue sessions in Berlin and Munich (June 11 to 15, 2018), and in Washington, DC and Boston (October 14 to 19, 2018), respectively. Discussions will take place around three main issue areas: (1) the implications of technological change for the public sphere and democracy, (2) the digital economy and its impact on society, as well as (3) international data flows and collaboration on cybersecurity challenges. In between and after the sessions, the TDD fellows will disseminate the results of their work through blog posts, op-eds, podcasts, and policy breakfasts.
