FOCUS ON
img

The new EU political leadership is clear: digitisation and tech innovation are both a huge opportunity and a challenge for Europe. We must find our place on the global digital map. In this context, key stakeholders gathered for our 3rd #Dialogue4Tech, dedicated to the EU approach to digital services. One thing clearly emerged from the conversation: in their relationship with fast evolving technologies, Europeans are primarily digital “citizens”. This means they have a range of diverse needs, as users, consumers, entrepreneurs, and innovators.

During our “Dialogue for Tech Leadership” on June 25, we brought together representatives from consumers, users with disabilities, start-ups, SMEs and business users. Our guests were: BEUC (Maryant Fernández Pérez), the European Disability Forum (Alejandro Moledo and Mher Hakobyan), Allied for Startups (Benedikt Blomeyer-Bartenstein), INTUG (Danielle Jacobs), and SMEunited (Katarzyna Koziol).
