The Digital Agenda for Europe (DAE) is one of seven flagship initiatives under the Europe 2020 strategy. It focuses on modern technologies and online services that will allow Europe to create jobs and promote economic prosperity. It aims to improve the daily lives of EU citizens and businesses in a variety of ways.
Successful delivery and implementation of the DAE in Ireland is a Government priority. The overall aim of the DAE is "to deliver sustainable economic and social benefits from a digital single market based on fast and ultrafast internet and interoperable applications."
The DAE identifies seven areas for action with 100 follow up actions for both the European Commission and Member States. Many of the actions cut across a number of Government Departments. Our Department coordinates progress reports on the DAE across Government to the Commission.
The Commission's website provides more information on the DAE.
