    Public Program | Roundtable Discussion: Into The Clouds. European SMEs and the Digital Age
    On October 10, 2016, Aspen Germany and the Atlantic Council co-hosted a roundtable discussion on Europe’s cloud-computing landscape. Tyson E. Barker, senior research fellow at the Brandenburgisches Institute for Society and Security, presented his findings and policy recommendations on the topic. Among them he explained that, considering its economic power, Germany’s process of adopting to the Cloud-Industry was surprisingly low, thus making Germany “the unlikely laggard“. A controversial discussion followed, led by Dr. Burwell from the Atlantic Council and Clark Parsons from the Internet Economy Foundation. Many aspects of the digital economy were discussed, such as legal and security issues. You can read Tyson E. Barker's publication here.
