There are seven pillars to the EU digital agenda which must be built for economic success
The digital agenda for Europe is a plan from the European Commission and which is one of its seven key objectives for Europe for 2020.
The digital agenda itself is built on seven pillars. One of the key objectives of the digital agenda is the delivery of economic and societal benefits based on ultra-fast broadband access.
The first pillar is achieving the Digital Single Market. The EC recognises that the internet doesn’t stop at the boarder. Building a digital single market means providing infrastructure for digital entertainment delivery, payments platforms and requires a level of collaboration that is so far not been achieved. It will require agreements on data privacy, data security and collaboration between national and international telecoms infrastructure players and internet players under an agreed regulatory framework. The digital agenda will seek to update single market rules for the digital era.
