On Friday 30 June, the European Commission adopted indicators for monitoring the EU’s digital transformation. These indicators should provide guidance to Member States on how they should structure their national roadmaps to achieve the targets of Digital Decade 2030 (see EUROPE 13122/37).
“With the Digital Decade 2030, we and the Member States have set the course for Europe’s digital transformation. It is essential to monitor progress in order to stay on track and collectively achieve the digital future we are planning for“, said Margrethe Vestager, Executive Vice-President responsible for a Europe fit for the digital age.
These indicators should make it possible to measure developments in the area of digital transformation within the EU, particularly with regard to objectives for digital infrastructure, skills, businesses and public services. An initial progress report should be published by the Commission after the summer of 2023.
“Thanks to the key performance indicators we are defining today, we will be able to measure our progress on these trajectories and ensure that we are living up to our ambitions“, added Commissioner for Internal Market Thierry Breton.
EU Member States will have to adopt their respective national roadmaps by 9 October.
