The Digital World in 2025: Indicators for European Action

Launch Event


This special EIF Report was launched at a conference in the European Parliament with more than 100 participants, which showed the interest raised by this opus.

The Report addresses the wider economic, political and social changes being driven in Europe and around the world by the on-going revolution in digital communications technologies.  

Our purpose is to challenge European political leaders and policy-makers to put Europe’s place in the digital world of 2025 at the centre of their preoccupations and priorities today.  It is not an exaggeration to say that Europe’s future depends on it.
