Digital Day 2021 will take place on 19 March as a virtual event, organised by the European Commission in cooperation with the Portuguese Presidency.
Digital Day 2021 will bring together Member States to discuss current and future challenges of digital technologies and commit to addressing them. Hosted by Thierry Breton, the EU Commissioner for the Internal Market, and the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union, this one-day event will include Ministers from Member States, Members of European Parliament, executives of industry and other high-level stakeholders.
Like at previous Digital Days, Member States will make concrete commitments in the form of ministerial declarations. Ground breaking initiatives resulting from previous Digital Day Declarations include the European High Performance Computing (EuroHPC) Joint Undertaking, the European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI) or 5G cross-border corridors for Connected and Automated Mobility.
During Digital Day, Member States will sign commitments on data, startups and a green and digital transformation of the EU. These declarations will strengthen Europe’s role in the digital world through international partnerships, boosting the digital economy, finding green digital solutions and more. CEOs from the ICT sector will also be invited to sign a declaration committing to a greener digital future.
Sessions will be hosted online, and are open to the press. Journalists and the general public can register for the event on the registration page.
