Digital Agenda Scoreboard Reveals Good Progress but Some Targets Delayed


Over one year has passed since the flagship initiative, Digital Agenda for Europe (DAE), was launched by the European Commission as part of its Europe 2020 Smart Growth strategy. The aim of this initiative is to achieve set targets via seven different pillars related to enhancing digital literacy, skills and inclusion, trust & security, and research & innovation among others. Recently a scoreboard was released that measured the performance of the EU and Member States in delivering these agreed targets so far.

The scoreboard shows that of the 101 DAE actions that the EU has committed itself to, six have been delayed. Within the areas of eCommerce over a third of citizens now shop online and the same proportion use eGovernment services. However cross-border eCommerce is barely growing, and public investment in ICT research & development has been slow.
