Europe’s Digital Day tomorrow will call for more collaborations that prioritise the use of tech to positively shape the continent’s future.
Backed by the European Commission, it will build on the progress made since last year’s Digital Day in Rome. Big strides have been made in that time on the development of a Digital Single Market, with the implementation of policies including the end to roaming charges and the ‘portability of online content’.
Tomorrow’s discussions will push for further cooperation in areas including blockchain, artificial intelligence and eHealth.
Andrus Ansip, Vice-President for the Digital Single Market, said: “Europeans are starting to feel the benefits of the Digital Single Market on the ground. They can now travel across borders with their favourite video and music streaming services – and with no roaming charges. Soon geoblocking when shopping online will be a distant memory.”
And you can watch the discussions between EU policy makers, business leaders, academia and civil society via livestream tomorrow.
“I expect Digital Day 2018 to bring the digital cooperation in Europe to a new level regarding artificial intelligence as well as eHealth, and I encourage all EU Member States and stakeholders to contribute to our efforts to keep Europe a global player in the digital age,” added Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for the Digital Economy and Society.
