Legal barriers – how to reconcile the protection of competition with the protection of cooperation?
Introduction Green Deal and Fit for the digital age – how to make the best out of it for Europe’s future
Rada Rodriguez – President, Orgalim
Introduction Dominika Bettman – CEO, Siemens Polska
Moderator Olivier Blank – Director European Affairs, ZVEI
Invited Jacek Łukaszewski – CEO, Schneider Electric
Grzegorz Drozd – Policy Officer, European Commission
Rada Rodriguez – President, Orgalim

The discussion will be entirely dedicated to the necessity of creation of a new competitive safeguard system. The development of the network and the Internet of Things enables a significant increase in the productivity of the economy, involving closer cooperation between enterprises. The cornerstone of this sort of cooperation is data sharing, which is difficult or even impossible in the current legal order. The growing digitization of enterprises allows increasing productivity by exchanging and combining data and information. This is the basis for cooperation between plants working in the framework of industry 4.0. This also means that cooperation between rivals and direct competitors can be beneficial and is in some ways inevitable. Therefore, during the discussion we will elaborate on the subject of the future principles of data-based cooperation in the field of industry 4.0.

We will discuss the changes that need to be implemented in current regulations, so that closer cooperation will not lead to monopolization of the market and weakening competition, and thus slowing down innovative development trends.
