Digitalisation offers ample opportunity for economic growth and social well-being. The last decade saw an exponential spread of digital solutions and their applications across multiple domains, while the COVID-19 pandemic drove many businesses, institutions, and organisations to adopt digital tools at an unprecedented pace.
However, digitalisation comes with increasingly novel, complex, and profound issues that extend from employee well-being to digital divides and competition issues, which may negatively impact societies across the EU. Setting Europe on a path of successful digital transformation, well-coordinated reforms, regulatory and policy measures, and investments will be needed at both national and European levels.
Our knowledge of emerging trends, combined with robust methodological expertise, enables us to provide state-of-the-art research, impact assessment, and evaluation services in the area of digitalisation.
In our work, we cover four key areas that are also central to the Digital Compass for the EU’s digital decade:
- Digital skills for the population and digital professionals
- Secure and sustainable digital infrastructures
- Digital transformation of businesses
- Digitalisation of governance and public services
