Keynote speech by Guenther Oettinger

After spending decades bringing down barriers regarding trade in goods and services across borders, the European Union is now in the process of realising the Digital Single Market to boost the European online economy. We have now entered a world in which digital is embedded in our daily lives and realise the exponential value that digitalisation has, and could have, for the real world. With the implementation of the Digital Single Market Strategy, the EU is opening up digital opportunities for business and people, both on a European and national level.

 

EU Policy Plan for the Digital Innovation Industry

Will the European Commission be able to reach its 16-point Policy plan as part of its Digital Single Market Strategy? The European Commission has until the end of 2016 to present all of its plans. Is this the right approach? Do the current rules enable and aid the development of European Digital champions? And what will the next 10 years of digital innovation look like?
