Digital Agenda: building a flourishing digital economy - Scoreboard outlines progress so far

(31 May 2011) The Digital Agenda Scoreboard gives essential data and in-depth analysis of progress so far with the implementation of the Digital Agenda for Europe (DAE). The Scoreboard is the first to be published by the European Commission showing the performance of the EU and Member States in delivering on the agreed targets after the first year of existence of the DAE. The DAE includes 101 specific actions (78 for the Commission, of which 31 were legal proposals, and 23 for Member States) which will together boost investment in, and use of, digital technologies. They are grouped under 7 headings, each representing a key area of Europe's digital economy. Overall, progress is good: 11 actions have been completed (two ahead of schedule), 6 actions due to be delivered last year are delayed, and the other 84 are largely on track.

3rd Future Internet Usage Areas Workshop

28 June 2011 - 29 June 2011 Brussels, Belgium

This workshop aims to cultivate a common discussion between the stakeholders from all sectors using, and planning to use, the services and facilities of Future Internet (FI) to build an extended FI community and to foster a holistic cross sector approach to accelerating the Future Internet in Europe. It will enable a detailed discussion on the Usage Areas requirements and in particular how they can be part of the bigger picture of Future Internet evolution in Europe. A specific ambition will be to identify how additional usage areas may share and benefit from the approach of the FI-Public Private Partnership (PPP) while working under complementary programmes. Another ambition is to promote an ongoing discussion about the priorities and the activities in the community not directly involved in the PPP and how to organise this.
