Digital success or failure - or something in between? How can Europe shape its digital future?
Europe needs to increase the space for experimentation and entrepreneurship in the digital economy, argues Meelis Kitsing in a new paper for ECIPE. Europe’s digital future depends crucially on the policies that we adopt – and rather than banging on about big American platforms, Europe should learn from their success and use that for the next phase of the digital economy. Kitsing outlines different scenarios for Europe’s digital futures and consider what they would entail for business growth in Europe and what influence the EU would have on the global stage.
