What is Digital Transformation?

Digital technology is changing people’s lives. The EU’s digital strategy aims to make this transformation work for people and businesses, while helping to achieve its target of a climate-neutral Europe by 2050.

Digital Europe programme 2021-2027

In 2018, under the new Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for 2021-2027, the Commission put forward a proposal for a programme aimed at building the EU’s strategic digital capacities (supercomputing, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence and skills) and at facilitating the deployment and uptake of digital technologies across Europe. Following an early second-reading agreement reached on 14 December 2020, Parliament is expected to vote on the proposal at second reading in April, finalising the ordinary legislative procedure.

Digital transformation is the integration of digital technologies by companies and the impact of the technologies on society.

Digital platforms, the Internet of Things, cloud computing and artificial intelligence are among the technologies affecting …

… sectors from transport to energy, agri-food, telecommunications, financial services, factory production and health care, and transforming people’s lives.

Technologies could help to optimise production, reduce emissions and waste, boost companies’ competitive advantages and bring new services and products to consumers.

The Commission is determined to make this Europe’s “Digital Decade”. Europe must now strengthen its digital sovereignty and set standards, rather than following those of others – with a clear focus on data, technology, and infrastructure.
