BEYOND THE DIGITAL SINGLE MARKET

HOW TO DEVELOP AND DESIGN THE FUTURE OF THE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

The internet and digital technologies are influencing our world. But there are still many barriers that deny access to goods and services and that limit dif-ferent actors to make use of the advantages of the new digital means. The European Union therefore aims to complement the Single Market in terms of digitalisation by creating a Digital Single Market.

The exposure to digital technologies is one of the most current and most discussed topics in the European Union, but what has actually been reached regarding the Digital Single Market, what kind of progress still needs to be made and which challenges will have to be overcome in the future? These were some of the questions addressed during the event ‘Beyond the Digital Single Market: How to develop and design the future of the digital transformation’ on 08 November 2017. The event took place as part of ‘Think Digital!’ – a year-long series on the opportunities and challenges of the digital transformation, organised jointly by the European Office of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, Google, Siemens and ZVEI (German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association).
