On 16 and 17 February 2023 the IT Law Forum(www.goettingen-itrecht.de) was organized by Göttingen University. The Forum focused on the IT and Data Law, Cybersecurity Law and Data Protection Law. Forum participants discussed recently adopted and draft legislation (e.g., Data Act, Data Governance Act and Cyber Resilience Act) and examined its impact on business and consumers.
The DDM4SME team from Göttingen University used the Forum to introduce the project and the Data Economy Law master’s program to the audience and to collect the feedback regarding its concept, structure, teaching approach and relevance for the practice. The questions and comments from the Forum participants indicated that the DEL master’s program had good prospects of attracting significant interest from potential students and employers and of serving as a valuable stepstone to a career in the modern-day digital economy.
