Consumers are surrounded by an ever greater number of connected household products. This 'Internet of Things' has the potential to benefit European consumers. But there are also several causes for concern. This calls for further exploration, which consumer organisations will do on November 28.
The conference will address the opportunities and risks of the Internet of Things. It zooms in on the areas of privacy, competition, consumer rights, contracts, safety and security. A key feature of the conference will be to shed light on the role of consumer organisations.
How should these organisations respond to the challenges of the Internet of Things? What action is needed to keep abreast of the technical challenges of a connected world? How can consumer organisations continue to provide product advice for consumers?
Date: 28 November
Time: 09:00 – 17:00
Location: L42, Rue de la Loi, 42 - B 1040 Brussels
