The Five Freedoms Project’s Seminar - Competition, Growth and Technological Diffusion in Europe’s Digital Economy: What is Europe’s Problem?

April 06 2016
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Matthias Bauer, Zilvinas Silenas, Diego Zuluaga
Time: 10:00

Europe’s digital economy can grow faster and generate a far bigger contribution to growth in Europe’s economy.

Compared with other advanced economic regions of the world, the expansion of Europe’s economy – while varied across the EU – has been slow and does no raise productivity as much as it has done in, for instance, Korea and the United States. What is holding back the growth of the digital economy? While there recently has been a focus on structures of competition in the digital economy, it looks like there are significant policy barriers to digital growth. What are these barriers – and how can they be knocked down?
