EVENT: AIDA Europe Webinar series will take place starting 24 March 2021

23 March 2021 — Irina GHETU
On 24 March 2021 AIDA Europe is holding the first in a series of webinars, called " The resilience of the Insurance Distribution Directive to new technologies", addressing topical issues of concern to insurers and lawyers across all sectors. XPRIMM Publications supports the event series as Media Partner!

The webinar will take the form of two panel discussions. The first, moderated by Dr Kyriaki NOUSSIA (University of Exeter, UK), will feature Peter MCBURNEY (Head of Technology Consulting, Europe, Middle East and Asia, Norton Fulbright LLP) and Bruno SCARONI (Group Chief Transformation Officer, Generali). The second, moderated by Prof. Dr Pierpaolo MARANO (Universit Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milan, Italy), will allow Nic De MAESSCHALCK (Director, BIPAR) and Nico SPIEGEL (Legal Officer, DG Internal Market and Services, European Commission) to express views from the perspective of both intermediaries and the regulators.

Each will be followed by a Q&A session.

The dates and topics of the further AIDA Europe webinars in the 2021 series are:
  • 19 May 2021 - Transparency in Insurance Contract Law
  • 14 October 2021 - Transparency in Insurance Regulation and Supervisory Law
  • 2 December 2021 - Insurance and Human Rights

AIDA Europe's Co-chair, Alkistis CHRISTOFILOU observes, "With the pandemic preventing us from proceeding with our 9th AIDA Europe Conference in Zurich, now being re-scheduled for the early part of 2022, the opportunity tocontinue our activities via this series of webinars, among other remote activities, is greatly welcomed. As ever, the diversity of involvement in AIDA Europe activities - from the insurance sector, private practice, the regulatory side and academia - is a key asset to allow us to achieve effective information exchange and discussion, by whatever means."

Prof. Dr Pierpaolo MARANO, Chair of AIDA Europe's Scientific Committee adds: "The AIDA Europe webinar series allows us now to continue the very fruitful discussion previously conducted and impressive contributions already received by way of academic papers and industry insights. The material in the books in the AIDA Europe Research Series on Insurance Law & Regulation, published by Springer, is serving as an invaluable basis for continued informed consideration of these evolving areas of importance to the worlds of insurance, law and regulation."
