Europe: Five ICT priorities for restructuring economies and societies and spurring growth

[ec] To achieve the potential of ICT for restructuring our economies and societies and to spur the economic upturn at a crucial moment in time, we need to address urgently the following five priorities:

  • High-speed broadband for all;
  • Copyright and content with a clear single market dimension;
  • Improve the services available to European consumers;
  • Deploy technologies already at hand – in particular developing what I would like to call the 'European cloud';
  • Make sure that ICT delivers its contribution to achieving the Copenhagen goals.
