Europe’s Digital Decade

Europe must now lead the way on digital – or it will have to follow the way of others

President von der Leyen urged decision makers to create a common plan for a digital Europe with clearly defined goals for 2030. Such plans, von der Leyen argued, should encompass connectivity, skills and digital public services.

Von der Leyen explained that 20% of the NextGeneration’s European Union budget will be invested in projects of a digital nature.

The European Digital Strategy is based on four key principles, namely:

  • Technology that works for people;
  • A fair and competitive digital economy;
  • An open, democratic and sustainable digital society; &
  • Europe as a global digital player.
