Digital Compass: EU outlines its digital ambitions for 2030

Date
April 27, 2021

The Commission recently presented a vision for Europe’s digital transformation by 2030 which revolves around four main pillars: skills, government, infrastructure and business. These four areas are part of the EU Digital Compass which is designed to translate the Union’s digital ambitions for 2030 into concrete terms. The plan includes targets and key milestones, a joint governance structure including a traffic light monitoring system to identify successes and gaps, as well as multi-state projects combining investments from the EU, Member States and the private sector.

The vision builds on the Strategy on Shaping Europe’s Digital Future that remains the overarching framework.  It considers the enormous changes brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, which has massively accelerated the use of digital tools, demonstrating their opportunities while exposing the vulnerability of our society to new digital inequalities. The Communication also includes a monitoring system measuring the progress of the EU against the key targets for 2030.
