The EU has set out clear goals to build up Europe’s digital capabilities: growing innovative SMEs, strengthening telecoms resilience, and rolling out highest-class connectivity solutions across member states. But what exactly is needed for Europe to realize this ambitious digital vision? Is there a divergence between vision and reality? What are the recommendations from some of Europe’s most innovative industry players on how to address any gaps, and why is telecom infrastructure critical for Europe’s post-COVID recovery? What is the view from EU institutions?
The event will provide a forum to discuss the future of telecoms and connectivity in Europe. The COVID-19 crisis has demonstrated the central importance of connectivity in our lives – as well as laid bare the limitations. Connectivity has the potential to reshape our lives, but the European infrastructure that underpins it needs to be fit for purpose.
Join us to hear from some of Europe’s most promising and innovative Mobile Network Operators and SMEs in the connectivity market explain their role in building up Europe’s Next Generation digital capabilities.
