THE EU Digital Decade

Announced in 2021, the EU Digital Decade sets out a vision for Europe’s digital transformation by 2030. It has four key areas: ICT skills; business transformation; secure and sustainable digital infrastructures; and digitalisation of public services.

5G is key to this vision: the Digital Decade sets a goal for coverage of all populated areas by 2030 and regards 5G verticals as digital transformation enablers for businesses. Read more about the Digital Decade here.
