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?
In this episode, Fredrik Erixon and Henna Virkkunen talk about digitalisation in Europe.
Henna Virkkunen is a Member of the European Parliament and its committees on Industry (ITRE) and Transport and Tourism (TRAN). Before becoming an MEP, Virkkunen was a Member of the Finnish Parliament, and held several ministerial positions in the Finnish government, including Minister for Education and Minister for Transport.
