Having already spent two conferences on digital platforms, the first of which focused on the economic principles that govern their development, the second on the issue of their regulation, the Innovation & Regulation in Digital Services Chair is continuing its work on this topic. This third conference will be focused on the economic activity of the platforms, the ecosystem transformations they generate, and the companies strategies and management to adapt to it.
We will discuss these issues with, among others: Mounir Mahjoubi, founder of “La Ruche qui dit oui” and President of the Conseil National du Numérique, Yves Weisselberger, founder of Snapcar, Yves Tyrode, Digital Director and Communication at SNCF, and Vivek Badrinath, Deputy CEO, Accor Hotels.
