Fit for the digital age
The EU’s digital strategy aims to make the digital transformation work for people and businesses, while helping to achieve its target of a climate-neutral Europe by 2050. The strategy was decided to strengthen the EU's digital sovereignty and set standards with a clear focus on data, technology, and infrastructure. it will focus on three key objectives to ensure that digital solutions help Europe to pursue its own way towards a digital transformation that works for the benefit of people through respecting our values. It also aim to put Europe in a position to be a trendsetter in the global debate.
- Technology that works for people: Development, deployment and uptake of technology that makes a real difference to people’s daily lives. A strong and competitive economy that masters and shapes technology in a way that respects European values.
- A fair and competitive economy: A frictionless single market, where companies of all sizes and in any sector can compete on equal terms, and can develop, market and use digital technologies, products and services at a scale that boosts their productivity and global competitiveness, and consumers can be confident that their rights are respected.
- An open, democratic and sustainable society: A trustworthy environment in which citizens are empowered in how they act and interact, and of the data they provide both online and offline. A European way to digital transformation which enhances our democratic values, respects our fundamental rights, and contributes to a sustainable, climate-neutral and resource-efficient economy.
