Communication published by the European Commission on 9 March 2021, setting out a vision, targets and avenues for a successful digital transformation in the European Union (EU) by 2030.
The Commission proposes a Digital Compass to translate the EUʼs digital ambitions for 2030 into concrete terms. This comprises a number of pillars:
The EU's ambition is to be digitally sovereign in an open and interconnected world, and to pursue digital policies that empower people and businesses to seize a human centred, sustainable and more prosperous digital future. This includes addressing vulnerabilities and dependencies as well as accelerating investment.
This Communication follows up on the Commission President's intention to establish a Digital Decade. It also responds to a similar call by the European Council and it build on the Commission's Digital Strategy published in 2020. The vision proposes to agree on a set of digital principles, to launch important multi-country projects, and to prepare a legislative proposal setting out a robust governance framework, to monitor progress – the Digital Compass.
