The communication presents a vision, targets and avenues for a successful digital transformation of Europe by 2030. It proposes to agree on a set of digital principles, to rapidly launch important multi-country projects, and to prepare a legislative proposal setting out a robust governance framework, to monitor progress – the Digital Compass.
The Digital Compass translates the EUʼs digital ambitions for 2030 into concrete terms, that evolve around four cardinal points:
1. Digitally skilled citizens and highly skilled digital professionals
2. Secure, performant and sustainable digital infrastructures
3. Digital transformation of businesses
4. Digitalisation of public services
The Compass sets out a robust joint governance structure with Member States based on a monitoring system with annual reporting in the form of traffic lights. The targets will be enshrined in a Policy Programme to be agreed with the European Parliament and the Council.
