Andrea Renda – Senior Research Fellow and Head of Global Governance, Regulation, Innovation & Digital Economy at the Center of European Policy Studies (CEPS) – publishes an analysis of the European Commission’s plans to make the digital economy fit for Europe. He argues that the Digital Compass will be crucial in achieving Europe’s digital sovereignty, but needs a variety of 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.
