Digital 2021: Leading the digital decade
As a result of the pandemic, the world has become a lot more digital in a short period of time. To keep society going, transforming our way of working and living had to become almost entirely digital. However, not everyone has equal access to digital technologies.
In recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, stakeholders are wondering what the future of digital in Europe will look like, what the 2030 goals should be when thinking about digital transformation, and what the road is towards meeting those goals. At the two-day online event Digital 2021: Leading the Digital Decade, the European Commission and the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union will lead the way in discussing these questions. Its vision is simple: everyone in Europe can and should benefit from digital.
On day one, the focus will be on the Communication “2030 Digital Compass: the European way for the Digital Decade”. The second day will be devoted to the launch of the first financial instrument of the EU for European projects on digital, the Digital Europe Programme.
