Europe’s Digital Agenda

The Digital Agenda is Europe’s strategy for a flourishing digital economy by 2020. It outlines policies and actions to maximise the benefit of the Digital Revolution for all.

To achieve these goals, the Commission will work closely with national governments, concerned organisations and companies. An annual Digital Assembly will bring stakeholders together to assess progress and emerging challenges.

What is the Digital Agenda for Europe and the Digital Agenda Assembly?

The Digital Agenda for Europe is the European Union’s strategy for developing the digital society and economy. It was launched in May 2010.

The Digital Agenda Assembly is a milestone in the delivery of the Digital Agenda, which foresees “an annual Digital Assembly in June bringing together Member States, EU institutions, citizens’ representatives and industry to assess progress and emerging challenges”. This event thus aims at supporting the DAE by assessing progress, identifying challenges and stimulating contributions.

The first Digital Agenda Assembly will take place in Brussels on 16-17 June 2011, in the “Autoworld” site, close to the Schuman square.
