Technological sovereignty: Through the renewal of our imaginations, can Europe rethink the use and creation of its technologies?  

The development of new technologies is a real sovereignty challenge. Technological sovereignty confers on its holder a power than transcends States and travels beyond borders. China and the United States have fully understood this. Values, ways of doing things, of thinking and acting are all conveyed through technological tools that are inundating the global and European markets. Present both in public and private spheres, most of them are created and owned by large multinational companies. How is Europe positioning itself? What imaginations is it in the process of developing?
By contrast, the mastery of technologies, both in terms of uses, practices and hardware and software creation can become a form of citizen emancipation. By favouring the autonomy of a society through the reappropriation of expertise or know-how around technological tools, technological sovereignty takes on a whole new meaning.
Can these two types of technological sovereignty be reconciled? And if so, what are the challenges? What kind of Europe for tomorrow?
