Making the digital economy fit for Europe

May 11, 2021

Andrea Renda – Senior Research Fellow and Head of Global Governance, Regulation, Innovation & Digital Economy at the Center of European Policy Studies (CEPS) – published an analysis of the European Commission’s plans to make the digital economy fit for Europe. He describes how the Digital Compass plays a crucial role in achieving Europe’s digital sovereignty but needs various adjustments. These include a more nuanced approach to connectivity since 5G technologies seem to be cost-effective only in a subset of use cases, more efforts in the development of “Personal Information Management Systems”, and clearer rules for the governance of future data spaces. Finally, Renda argues for effective coherence between policy files to make the best out of enforcement provisions.
