One year after the launch of the EU Digital Decade Targets in March 2021, ETNO invites you to join an event organized under the high patronage of the French Presidency of the Council of the EU.

The EU Digital Decade targets outline the main digital ambitions to be achieved in Europe by 2030 in the field of digital skills, digital infrastructure, digitization of public services and digital transformation of businesses. Meanwhile, the roll-out of 5G and FTTH networks is speeding up across Europe, providing the essential backbone to accelerate an inclusive implementation of the targets.

One year into the debate on the EU Digital Decade targets, we propose to address some key questions on how to shift from targets to enforcement: How is Europe progressing in the implementation of the objectives? What are the opportunities and obstacles to the implementation? What are the main challenges in applying the targets at European and national level, from a policy and regulatory viewpoint? What are the best practices identified so far both at EU and national level?
