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.
