Shaping Europe’s digital future

In her political guidelines, Commission President von der Leyen stressed the need for Europe to lead
the transition to a healthy planet and a new digital world. This twin challenge of a green and digital
transformation has to go hand-in-hand.

The Commission wants a European society powered by digital solutions that are strongly rooted
in our common values, and that enrich the lives of all of us: people must have the opportunity to develop personally, to choose freely and safely, to engage in society, regardless of their age, gender or professional background. Businesses need a framework that allows them to start up, scale up, pool and use data, to innovate and compete or cooperate on fair terms. And Europe needs to have a choice and pursue the digital transformation in its own way.

For the next five years, the Commission will focus on three key objectives:

  • Technology that works for people
  • A fair and competitive economy
  • An open, democratic and sustainable society
