We submitted our feedback to the Commission. In our response, we highlight a lack of civil society and not-for-profit sectors in the roadmap document, which might ultimately undermine the success of the Commission’s initiative. In addition, we argue that the four cardinal points established by the Digital Compass need to allow the measurement of more complex goals related to achieving the twin transition and related goals of sustainability and societal well-being. In particular, the enhanced DESI should include indicators for measuring adherence to the Digital Principles.
