About Round Tables




The Webit Round Tables are the highest-level, invitation only level events under the umbrella of Webit.Festival Europe 2018 aiming at fostering multi stakeholder dialogue on European digital related public policies including AI, Digital Health, Smart Cities, Blockchain, Mobility among the others.


These inivtiation-only, very private and intimate discussions shall gather up to 15 people - policy makers (MEPs, EU Commissioners, ministers and others), business executives from top global companies, academia and civil society representatives.

We took the multi stakeholder approach and added Webit twist to it in order to facilitate not only meaningful talks, but also to discuss on broad public policy road map in order to re:Invent Europe's Future.




Join us for two days of meaningful, practical discussions with the people who create politics, the ones that stand behind the science of politics and the ones that inspire politics. Click here to apply and be among those who make the real difference. Your application shall be considered and in case of approval, we will contact you to share the participating conditions.

All the findings from the round table discussions shall be presented to the European Commission and Member States as part of the book "re:Inventing Europe's future"
