The EU Commission’s goal is to drive forward the capital markets union through digitalization. Forced by the pandemic-related economic crisis, EU and ECB representatives are increasingly advocating the introduction of a European e-currency. Can the E-Euro safeguard eurozone sovereignty and financial stability? Does it mean the abolition of cash? What about the legal and technological framework? Is the E-Euro even necessary?

These and other questions will be discussed by:

  • Univ.-Prof.in Dr.in Tina Ehrke-Rabel – Professor and Head of the Institute for Financial Law at the Karl-Franzens-University Graz, Partner at Rabel & Partner
  • Mag. Nikolaus Jilch – Researcher and financial journalist at the Thinktank Agenda Austria
  • Dr. Arthur Stadler – Lawyer and partner at Stadler Völkel Rechtsanwälte GmbH with a focus on data protection, cryptocurrencies and internet law
  • Expert (TBA) – Austrian National Bank

Moderator: Daniela Gschwindt, LL.B. LL.M. – University Assistant, University of Vienna
