The goal of transforming Europe to a globally competitive, climate-neutral digitalised economy and society rests on two pillars: the green and digital (“twin”) transitions. European digital enterprises — especially SMEs — have the systemic power to comprehensively digitalise the economy. It is important, though, that the digital transformation takes place in a sustainable manner and supports the environmental goals of the Green Deal and the Circular Economy Plan.
The DIGITAL SME General Assembly on 15 October will thus focus on Sustainable Digitalisation. Also known as sustainable digital transformation, the concept refers to the process of digitalising the economy in a long-lasting, green, and organic way. Sustainable digitalisation aims to support and enable Europe’s twin transitions to a green and digital economy by building on its key strength: innovative SMEs and their business ecosystems.
In the long term, the goal of sustainable digitalisation is to strengthen European digital sovereignty.
As part of our General Assembly, this DIGITAL SME Live episode will present an impulse statement by DIGITAL SME President Dr Oliver Grün, followed by a high-level discussion hosting Mr Werner Stengg, member of Cabinet of the Executive Vice-President Vestager, responsible for the portfolio ‘Europe Fit for the Digital Age’ at the European Commission.
