The European Union’s digital strategy is today the second most important area of our continent’s development, alongside with the European Green New Deal. ICT has become a general-purpose technology, affecting all other sectors and fundamentally changing our societies. At the same time, such a dynamic pace of development of the digital economy has led to an accumulation of issues: lack of flexibility and proper law enforcement, negative social consequences, growing inequalities, as well as the monopolization of markets and privatization of digital public space.

In setting a digital future for Europe, we aim to propose principles and measures that will allow the socially beneficial development of new technologies on the continent.
