Advantages of Digital society

Digital innovation and technology are changing today's society by giving new opportunities for businesses, governments and citizens in a wide range of sectors including industry, health, social media, e-services, data etc. The digital world moves fast. Is the EU single market perfectly adapted to the digital era? It is important for Europeans to reflect on how the EU can take advantage of the digital revolution in order to remain competitive and create more jobs. Estonia, as a leader in ICT and digital services is the perfect location to raise these questions.
The aim of this event is to consider and reflect upon the opportunities linked to digital society and especially the digital single market as well as the development of digital public services which will be a priority topic during the Estonian Presidency.
The event will be attended by various stakeholders including EESC Members, local business representatives and high level speakers such as Commissioner Elżbieta Bieńkowska and Estonian Minister Kadri Simson.
