Parliament to set up 2030 roadmap for digital skills 

Legislation setting up a roadmap for digital skills, infrastructure, businesses and public services will be debated and put to the vote on Thursday.

The “Path to the Digital Decade” plan, already agreed upon with Council, aims to shape Europe’s digital transition by setting EU-wide digital targets to be achieved by 2030, via a joint effort by member states and the EU, as well as through joint investment.

The programme aims to ensure that 80% of the population aged 16-74 has at least basic digital skills. During talks with Council, MEPs also advocated that at least 75% of European enterprises should use cloud computing services, big data and Artificial Intelligence, and that more than 90% of European SMEs should reach at least a basic level of digital intensity.
