The road to Europe Fit for the Digital Age

Tech policy is at the forefront of the Von der Leyen Commission’s ambitions for making Europe Fit for the Digital Age; one of the six main ambitions of the President’s political guidelines.

Indeed, digital transformation touches every corner of our lives, bringing new opportunities, but also new risks. There is growing awareness in Europe of the potential of technology and its central role in transforming our society and economy across all sectors.

Over the next few years, we will see an explosion in legislative and non-legislative initiates in the tech sector, from a European Data Strategy and Platform Regulation to 5G and AI, to foster the digital transformation in Europe.

We have mapped out these upcoming policy initiatives for 2020/2021 to give you the need-to-know highlights at your fingertips.
