Digital Agenda for Europe - where do we stand?

/ Keynote
The talk will very briefly review what has been achieved since the Digital Agenda for Europe was first adopted in 2010. It will then situate the current mid-term review of the Agenda in the context of the larger discussions about the economic development of the EU and of the multi-annual financial planning that should be agreed by the 27 Member States towards the end of November: most importantly the current discussions about the size of the proposed Connecting Europe Facility and its digital part, as well as of Horizon 2020, the next EU framework programme for research and innovation. The talk will end on a brief preview of upcoming Digital Agenda proposals, e.g. on cyber-security.
