Decision of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing the 2030 Policy Programme “Path to the Digital Decade”

This page is also available in

Background

The proposal builds on 2030 Digital Compass, in which the Commission laid out the vision for a successful digital transformation of Europe's economy and society by the end of the decade. It introduces now a robust governance framework to reach the digital targets in the form of a Path to the Digital Decade.

Specifically, the Commission proposes to engage in an annual cooperation mechanism with Member States that will consist of:

  • A structured, transparent and shared monitoring system based on the Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) to measure progress towards each of the 2030 targets; including key performance indicators (KPIs);
  • An annual report on the ‘State of the Digital Decade', in which the Commission will evaluate progress and provide recommendations for actions;
  • Multiannual digital decade strategic roadmaps for each Member State, in which they will outline adopted or planned policies and measures in support of the 2030 targets;
  • A structured annual framework to discuss and address areas of insufficient progress through recommendations and joint commitments between the Commission and the Member States;
  • A mechanism to support the implementation of multi-country projects.

The Commission shall review the targets by 2026 to take stock of technological, economic and societal developments.
