Building our digital recovery
We have all experienced rapid changes to how we work, live and interact with each other in recent months. Behaviours have adapted; ways of working have altered; and things we took for granted have changed forever.
Now is the time to rethink our societies and our economies and make sure we build a stronger economically secure and more resilient future. A future that is more inclusive, greener and fairer. A future that embraces the best technology to shape a Europe that works for everyone.
90 for 27
Creating a greener, fairer, more digital society means we need to make sure we are investing in the right infrastructure and services that will deliver new jobs and economic growth.
If all 27 member states worked now to achieve a score of 90 on the DESI, we can be sure that we are building a truly digital society. Europe can build back better, stronger, and more resilient if we all get behind 90 for 27.
Read our analysis of the positive impact reaching 90 for 27 would have on Europe’s GDP and how it would level the playing field between member states.
Delivering Europe’s digital future today
There is a pressing need to kick start the COVID-19 recovery and build back better. By creating a truly Digital Europe, the benefits could be transformative – economically, socially and environmentally. Find out how Vodafone is already working to deliver Europe’s digital future, and how greater collaboration between the EU, industry and member states can make it a reality for everyone.
Europe’s recovery towards a new Digital Decade
We commissioned Deloitte to conduct a high-level analysis on the potential contribution of National Recovery and Resilience Plans (NRRPs) towards the Digital Decade targets. This study, titled Achieving the Digital Decade: Recovery & Resilience Plan Contributions covers 20 Member States and the overall EU progress towards these targets. The 20 Member States included are Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Cyprus, Czechia, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain. Based on this financial analysis, gaps appear greatest in regard to digital infrastructure, ICT specialists, the digitalisation of SMEs and cloud adoption. Furthermore, the study shows that the national and EU recovery plans for connectivity amount to just 46% of the estimated €210bn EU-wide investment needed to meet 2025 targets.
