Early March 2021, the Commission presented a vision, goals, and pathways for Europe’s successful digital transformation by 2030 in order to achieve a climate-neutral, circular, and resilient economy. The EU’s vision is to be digitally sovereign in a connected and open world and to follow digital policies that enable people and businesses to capture a human-centred, sustainable, and prosperous digital future. Addressing vulnerabilities and dependencies, as well as accelerating investment, are all part of this.
The Communication proposes to agree on a set of digital principles, to quickly launch important multi-country projects, and to prepare a legislative proposal outlining a robust governance framework, as well as a Digital Compass to track progress. Europe’s Digital Compass aim to translate the EUʼs digital ambitions for 2030 into concrete terms. They evolve around four cardinal points:
1) Digitally skilled citizens and highly skilled digital professionals
2) Secure, performant and sustainable digital infrastructures
3) Digital transformation of businesses
4) Digitalisation of public services
