Our visionfor an Open, InnovativeEuropean Digital Single Market
As the European Commission is unveiling its programme for a Digital Single Market, we believe that bold and innovative thinking is required to reap the full benefits of what the new digital world has to offer in terms of economic growth, jobs, global competitiveness, creativity and equal opportunities for businesses and citizens. OFE argues that the principles of Openness should underpin the essence of the approach being taken in developing the DSM in Europe, and goes on to propose a three pronged approach built on an Open Culture, a Common Framework, and adopting Digital by Default. This is our vision for an Open, Innovative European Digital Single Market.
Graham Taylor, CEO of OpenForum Europe
“By its very nature, the digital market is global, fast-moving, and constantly refreshing technology. To maximise the opportunity for its citizens and for business Europe needs to adopt an open culture, be totally determined to deliver the Digital Single Market across its Member States, and avoid the ambiguity that consensus can bring. Everything will be gained by being bold and looking to intercept new thinking, not by being held back by the past.”
