On July 15th, Oscar Jonsson, Academic Director of the Center for the Governance of Change, participated as a speaker at Closing the Gap – International Conference on Cyber, Digital and Tech, an event by the European Cyber Diplomacy Iniative, created by the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and EU Cyber Direct to bring scholars and practitioners closer together on cyber, tech and digital issues.

The conference had a multidisciplinary approach (law, IR, economics, political science and security studies) to cyber security and aimed at closing the gap between scholars and practitioners working on cyber-related issues. Oscar Jonsson spoke about the impact of emerging technologies – particularly AI and 5G – on cyber security.

Opening remarks were given by Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth and Philippe Goffin, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Defence, Belgium.
