If Europe wants to fully exploit the potentials of the emergent digital age and hold its own against international competition, it cannot rest on its laurels.
Europe must actively shape the process of digital transformation, purposefully mobilise existing potentials throughout its territory, and push ahead with necessary changes, including those of a structural kind.
It will be particularly important in that light to further develop the overall European innovation ecosystem, to strengthen Europe’s digital-policy voice at the international level and address the basics necessary for shaping the process of digitisation.
What this means in concrete terms is that Europe’s policies must become more agile, must include the public in the shaping process and must, e.g. in addition to a European agency for digital flagship projects as well as measures for greater security both in and through the process of digitisation, like wise initiate a process for a comprehensive digital framework strategy.
