Description

We would like to invite you to our next Digital in Practice Programme on:

E-payment: bringing the EU to the next level

26 April 2018, 08:30 – 10:00, Brussels

While increasing the level of security and confidence of electronic payment, the rules adopted by the Commission on 27 November 2017 will afford consumers more choice to use innovative services offered by third party providers, aka FinTech companies. Strong customer authentication will be achieved by combining physical items with passwords or biometric features, or through agreed alternative models. New services such as the so-called payment initiation services and account information services will be available to consumers across the EU, subject to strict security requirements.

The European Banking Authority and the European Central Bank will develop regulatory technical standards to support robust, flawless communication between banks and FinTech companies. Once adopted by the Commission and published in the Official Journal of the EU, these standards will inform the security measures and communication tools banks and other payment services providers will have to put in place within the next 18 months.

DIGITALEUROPE saw this short time-line and the future beyond as an opportunity to expand on the informal dialogue that has been building up since 2012 in the context of our ‘Digital in Practice Programme’. To this effect, we will host a workshop entitled ‘E-payment: bringing the EU to the next level’ on 26 April 2018 8:30-10:00. The following experts have agreed to launch the conversation:

Speakers:

- Andrea Servida, Head of Unit, eGovernment & Trust, DG CONNECT
- David Robert, CEO, Aevatar
- Jérôme Raguénès, Director, Digital, systems and means of payment, Fédération Bancaire Française

Moderator:

- Cecilia Bonefeld-Dahl, Director General of DIGITALEUROPE

In keeping with the DiPP spirit, we are happy to invite you to contribute your thoughts and experience to this informal exchange of views that will fit the Chatham House rule.

Registration: The number of seats is limited. Please register online before 24 April

Background

The Digital in Practice Programme aims to make a case for the digital industry and to evidence the transformative impact of digital products and services. By fostering short, crisp and open debates between leading experts and interested guests, our workshops afford the industry, policy makers and other key stakeholders a powerful educational platform where to share information and discuss informally how a truly ICT-enabled Europe will look like.
