Our vision for the digital transformation of Europe
We see an EU that emphasises a skilled workforce, trained and ready for the jobs of the future. Investing in workforce development will generate new industries and jobs, creating an ecosystem for businesses of all sizes to scale-up and compete within EU and overseas.
By 2025, we will see European governments transformed, oﬀering citizens improved, more agile, secure and cost-eﬃcient services. This includes leveraging innovation to aggressively tackle climate change and build a framework for a truly sustainable Europe.
Achieving this vision requires strong leadership from policymakers being responsive to the needs of all citizens, using technology to improve services, boost entrepreneurship and expand access to underserved communities.
The EU is ideally placed to make this vision a reality and take the lead to support innovation; policymakers have a responsibility to muster the political will and enact policies that capitalise on new opportunities and ensuring trust in digital services for citizens and companies to embrace digital transformation.
