Innovation friendly regulation for emerging technologies

Digital Economy Act rightly highlighted the importance of meeting the needs of citizens and making the UK fit for a digital future. In light of Britain’s exit from the European Union, there is a unique opportunity for the UK to position itself as a hub for business and digital innovation in Europe. Regulation must play its part by keeping pace with technological development and the Government has signalled its commitment to this through the creation of a new £10 million Regulatory Pioneers Fund.

This discussion was led by Carl Creswell, Director, Better Regulation, Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy focused on how regulation can support emerging technologies without stymieing innovation; and the practical steps needed to ensure regulation is relevant now and in the future, in the context of a fast-paced and ever-changing technological environment.

This roundtable was held under Chatham House Rule and brought together around 20 senior attendees from government, public services and businesses to share experiences and best practice across different sectors and industries.
