Innovation and diffusion in the digital economy

The digital economy is Europe’s fastest growing economy. New technology and online services are spreading fast throughout the economy, exposing old structures to new competition. Yet, the digital economy could grow faster and Europe is generally not in the forefront of economic digitalisation. What factors are slowing down the expansion of the digital economy – and how can Europe make it grow faster?
