Making Europe “fit for the digital age” is an undertaking that requires cooperation and collaboration. This has only become more evident in 2020, when unprecedented disruption has demanded a reconfiguration of how businesses run, how public administrations operate, and how citizens go about their daily lives.

This unique virtual edition of Masters of Digital – DIGITALEUROPE’s flagship annual gathering – focused on the role of digital in strengthening Europe’s emergence from the global pandemic, and looked at how deeper collaboration between business, government and civil society will deliver on the goal of a stronger digital Europe.

FUTURE UNICORN AWARD NOMINEES

BBC STORYWORKS

In May 2020, DIGITALEUROPE announced a landmark film series, to be produced by BBC StoryWorks Commercial Productions. “Digitally Enlightened”, to be launched in April 2021, will explore how a common vision in Europe will help digital innovation scale up and flourish to the benefit of citizens and businesses, and will uncover stories across Europe about the fascinating potential of digitalization over the next decade.

The first film of the series tells the story of the “Coding Class” project in Denmark, which aims at integrating coding into primary school teaching, and was produced with DIGITALEUROPE member IT-Branchen. Watch the film and join our panel “Digitally Enlightened: New World, New Skills” on 3 February at 4 PM CET to discuss about the future of digital skills in Europe with its protagonists.
