(09 March 2021) – Today the Commission presents targets and avenues for a successful digital transformation of Europe by 2030.
The EU’s ambition is to be digitally sovereign “in an open and interconnected world, and to pursue digital policies that empower people and businesses to seize a human centred, sustainable and more prosperous digital future.” This includes addressing vulnerabilities and dependencies as well as accelerating investment.
The Commission proposes a ‘Digital Compass’ to translate the EUʼs digital ambitions for 2030 into concrete terms. They evolve around four cardinal points:
1) Digitally skilled citizens and highly skilled digital professionals;
2) Secure, performant and sustainable digital infrastructures;
3) Digital transformation of businesses;
4) Digitalisation of public services.
