Croatia has taken over the Presidency of the European Council since 1 January 2020 for a six month term.

The Croatian-led priorities document includes digital aspects under each of the four strategic pillars, with ethics in AI highlighted. 

One goal of the strategy is to curate discussions on the legal and ethical implications of artificial intelligence as well as defining the accompanying standards of new technologies. 

The Croatian presidency will end on 30 June 2020. The full programme is available on the Presidency’s website.
