The Digital Agenda for Europe – one amongst the flagship
initiatives under the Europe 2020 Strategy for smart, sustainable and
inclusive growth – focuses on citizens and businesses’ needs, addressing them
by benefiting from 21st century technology and online
services to boost job creation, promote economic prosperity and improve the
daily lives of all Europeans. The booklet presenting the latest
developments in ICT research and innovation in the field of societal challenges
can be downloaded here: http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/tl/qualif/ict_for_societal_...
A showcase of projects will illustrate the benefits ICT currently offers as well
as its strong potential in addressing and solving societal challenges, showing
how very concrete results are achieved through multidisciplinary solutions.
Indeed, the involvement and mobilisation of key stakeholders – including
industry (e.g. textile, automotive, robotic, biomedical, telecoms, utilities
and electronics), governmental actors (European, national, regional and local
authorities), universities, research centres and civil society – is and will be
an indispensable point of strength to satisfy societal needs.
Enjoy the reading!
