  • The Digital Agenda for Europe

    The European Commission has just published its Digital Agenda, one of the seven flagship initiatives of the EU 2020 Strategy. The success of the Digital Agenda - namely creating a Digital Single Market - is linked to the political and economical success of the European Union.

The Digital Agenda is a valiant effort to acknowledge and address the role of ICT: in the current economic climate it is certainly the most promising sector to improve individually and collectively every European citizen’s life as the business environment. The Digital Agenda shows as well the enabling role ICT plays across all sectors of the economy.


Digital information technologies and the emergence of new services, although beneficial to consumers, also represent a major challenge to consumers’ fundamental rights to privacy and protection of personal data.

The Digital Agenda for Europe

The European Commission has just published its Digital Agenda, a key component of its EU 2020 Strategy. This highly political road map for the information society sector looks at delivering a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

What we need is a digital internal market!

European Commission Vice-President and Commissioner Neelie Kroes introduced the Digital Agenda for Europe, the first of the seven flagship initiatives under the Europe 2020 Strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
