Digital agenda

On 19 May 2010, the European Commission presented the Digital Agenda which would significantly contribute to the economic growth in the EU and benefit the whole society.

The Agenda outlines seven priority areas for action: creating a digital Single Market, greater interoperability, boosting internet trust and security, much faster internet access, more investment in research and development, enhancing digital literacy skills and inclusion, and applying information and communications technologies to address challenges facing society like climate change and the ageing population. In these seven areas, the Digital Agenda foresees some 100 follow-up actions for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
