Stakeholder Survey: Your views on Europe's Digital Future

The European Commission's Directorate-General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG CONNECT) has launched a Stakeholder Survey to learn more about individuals, groups, organisations and entities who are involved in, or have views on, shaping Digital Agenda for Europe.

The Commission seeks more information on the areas stakeholders are interested in as well as rating the importance and level of satisfaction of certain aspects of interaction, for example easy access to information and the importance of timely and accurate feedback. The survey will take from 5 to 10 minutes to complete. Answers will remain anonymous. In January 2013 the main findings of the survey will be published on the Digital Agenda for Europe website.

About Digital Agenda for Europe
The Digital Agenda for Europe (DAE) aims to reboot Europe's economy and help Europe's citizens and businesses to get the most out of digital technologies. It is the first of seven flagships initiatives under Europe 2020, the EU's strategy to deliver smart sustainable and inclusive growth.

The Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector is responsible for 5% of European GDP, and ICTs have contributed to around half of the growth in EU productivity. They remain a critical factor in future growth. The DAE aims to deliver sustainable economic and social benefits from a digital single market based on fast and ultra fast internet and interoperable applications.

Launched in May 2010, the DAE contains 101 actions, grouped around seven priority areas:

  • creating a digital Single Market
  • greater interoperability
  • boosting internet trust and security
  • much faster internet access
  • more investment in research and development
  • enhancing digital literacy skills and inclusion and
  • applying information and communications technologies to address challenges
  • facing society like climate change and the ageing population.
