Since the Single Market was founded 30 years ago, Europe has benefitted from the increased flow of goods and services across the Union. The work to complete areas that remain fragmented continues, however, as do efforts to ensure that as novel goods and services enter the marketplace, they are also liberated from unnecessary red tape, avoiding fragmentation and enabling innovation and economic development to thrive.
In the digital sector, where much of the cutting edge European innovation takes place, there remains significant work around issues such as artificial intelligence, data privacy, cybersecurity, product safety, energy efficiency, and taxation, to name a few.
DIGITALEUROPE’s annual Summer Summit will discuss some of these major themes that challenge the digital single market, and look for solutions, particularly for SMEs who are disproportionately impacted by market fragmentation.
