All major platforms, technologies, AI-models, and businesses to manage data in the field of security, safety, and risk mitigation- are mostly at home in the United States or China. At the same time, Europe is trying to find a clear position by execution is decentralized and slowed by bureaucracies. Once more, governance, regulation, and taxation are the terms that define Europe’s AI and deep tech policy. What can be done to accelerate the process? Is Europe lagging behind loosing its chance to obtain and retain autonomy and sovereignty in a new digital world order?
