Friends of Europe has crowdsourced ideas, opinions, insights and experiences from policymakers, industry and civil society, to think deeply about the implications of the 4th Industrial Revolution.
We convened three high-level working groups, bringing together diverse, provocative and cutting-edge views. We posed questions that we felt would help us devise a set of policy choices that take a ‘whole economy, whole society’ approach to understanding how we prepare, plan for and take advantage of a digital age.
Our Discussion Paper highlights key trends, developments and issues across all layers of the digital ecosystem. It aims to highlight public policies and private sector decision-making that affect our future.
The Paper serves as a forward-looking guide to critical questions on the state of the global and European digital economy, drawing on the broad community of policymakers, industry leaders, entrepreneurs and civil society representatives.
