DESCRIPTION:The European Commission has set fresh EU Digital Decade Targets for the period 2020-2030. Full 5G and FTTH “connectivity for everyone” is the pivot towards all the other targets: from the digital transformation of businesses to digital public services, empowering the twin green/digital transition and boosting ICT skills. In this context, the Commission has also launched the European Declaration on Digital Rights and Principles for the Digital Decade, and has specifically called for “developing adequate frameworks so that all market actors benefiting from the digital transformation assume their social responsibilities and make a fair and proportionate contribution to the costs of public goods, services and infrastructures, for the benefit of all Europeans”. During this event, we will explore the following questions: is the EU on track to achieve its connectivity targets? How do we compare to global peers? How are different market actors contributing to the roll-out of 5G and FTTH? How are network costs distributed across the digital value chain? What about the financial – and environmental – sustainability of Europe’s internet ecosystem? TRANSP:OPAQUE END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
