The third edition of the Digital Day enabled the EU and interested Member States to pool resources to accelerate digital developments in key areas that can bring tangible benefits to our economies and our societies.

Digital Day has been a unique event intended to enable the EU and interested Member States to pool efforts and resources with a view to accelerating digital developments in key areas that can bring tangible benefits to our economies and our societies. In the past two years, the Digital Day was the occasion to launch important cooperation initiatives in the areas of supercomputing, digital industry, connected and automated driving, AI, blockchain and eHealth.

Following the previous Digital Days, the 2019 edition combined panel discussions with high-level political stakeholders from Member States’ governments. Digital Day 2019 has been dedicated to three areas where digital is expected to make a significant impact:

This year, Digital Day was preceded by a high-level event on developing a connectivity and data strategy for the Southern Mediterranean that the European Commission organised for the afternoon of 8 April.

European Commission (EC)

The European Commission is the executive body of the EU and runs its day-to-day business. It is made up of the College of Commissioners, 27 European Commissioners, one for each member state, who are each responsible for one or several policy areas. In addition, the 'Commission' also refers to the entire administrative body that supports the Commissioners, consisting of the Directorates-General and the Services.

The European Commission is the sole EU body capable of proposing new legislation. The Commission also performs an oversight function, monitoring whether European legislation is properly implemented in the member states. In the event of non-compliance, the Commission can coerce a member state to comply by starting a legal procedure at the European Court of Justice.
