The recovery plan sets out action at European level to increase investments in infrastructure and avoid falling behind in technologies such as 5G and artificial intelligence.

These efforts are coupled with strong green initiatives to orient and scale up innovations, as well as incentives for harnessing workers potential and creating job opportunities.

  • What is the state of play of the EU recovery plan and how should we use these funds to advance digitalisation in Europe?
  • How does 5G infrastructure power vertical industries and drive competitiveness and accessibility?
  • Why are technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence and edge computing part of the solution to achieve green objectives, create job opportunities and support SMEs?
