ECIPE Webinar: Digitalising Europe – Seizing the Opportunities, Knocking Down the Challenges

May 25 2021
Venue: ZOOM Webinar
Speakers: MEP Henna Virkkunen
Time: 12:00

Please join us for a conversation with MEP Henna Virkkunen.

Digitalisation and the growth of new technologies give us many new opportunities to improve society – from boosting economic productivity to delivering better care in hospitals and nursing homes. But are we seizing the opportunities that new innovations offer? A decade ago it seemed a done deal that we by now would have a fast-growing market for automated – if not self-driving – cars and that our infrastructure would be running on technologies that made us smarter. But there are many challenges to digitalisation, including inadequate investments and policy barriers. What can be done to speed up the development?
