Digital Agenda for Europe

Almost missed this press release from the EC.  Looks like it will keep a lot of people busy right upto 2015.

As well as suggesting a huge increase in the R&D Budget (!), the Agenda outlines seven priority areas for action:

  • creating a Digital Single Market
  • improving the framework conditions for interoperability between ICT products and services
  • boosting internet trust and security
  • guaranteeing the provision of much faster internet access
  • encouraging investment in research and development
  • enhancing digital literacy, skills and inclusion
  • applying ICT to address social challenges such as climate change, rising healthcare costs and the ageing population.
