Advanced Technologies for Industry

“What should the future of digital in Europe be?”, “What should our 2030 goals be when it comes to digital transformation?” and “How can we make sure we meet our objectives?”

These are the three main questions that will be discussed during the two-day online event Leading the Digital Decade. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the world has digitalised at a high pace. During these challenging times, digital transformation has played a significant role in keeping society going. However, in parallel, the gap between those with access to improved digital technologies and those who do not has widened.

This two-day event will focus on defining the way forward. The event is co-organised by the European Commission and the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

The first day will focus on the Communication “2030 Digital Compass: the European way for the Digital Decade”. The second day will be dedicated to the launch of the first financial instrument of the EU for European projects on digital, the Digital Europe Programme.

Register and join the online event on 1 and 2 June 2021.
