This Executive Training Course focuses on the Digital Single Market and its new challenges for European copyright, innovation and creativity. It will analyse the New Directive Copyright in the Digital Single Market and the challenges brought by innovation in creation by Artificial Intelligence (AI).


The informed audience will be actively involved in hands-on training sessions, which will span the new instruments in the Directive and their impact and includes a “lab analysis” on these instruments.

During the lab sessions, participants will take a deep dive into the new instruments in Directive and their interpretation. How can and should these instruments be implemented and interpreted in practice? What legal questions remain to be answered by the ECJ? What limitations and challenges can be anticipated? During the lab session on AI, participants will analyse and design copyright models for the protection of machine creativity, an issue of increasing importance and relevance for the present and the future.

A keynote speech about the “Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market: for European culture to flourish and circulate” by Giuseppe Abbamonte, Director Media and Data at DG CONNECT European Commission responsible for the digital copyright reform, will inspire the participants and open up new horizons on the challenging topic.
