At YPDP, we’ve also had to make a switch to virtual events for our young professionals community during the pandemic. Our new “virtual after work drinks” series with Members of the European Parliament has been a great success so far! In May, we welcomed Liberal MEP Moritz Körner and discussed his experiences with the COVID crisis and his digital policy priorities. In October, we sat down (virtually) with S&D MEP Tiemo Wölken to discuss the Digital Services Act, AI, data policy and the upcoming legislative battles on EU tech regulation. In November, we had a great conversation with S&D MEP Eva Kaili on issues ranging from emerging technologies to lawmaking in a politically complex – but motivated! – Parliament. We will continue the series with MEP guests in 2021, so stay tuned! Are you interested in becoming a YPDP member? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
