The Stockholm Region wants to contribute to the EU Digital Single Market becoming a reality. Europe, and in particular the urban areas of Europe, have unique leverage to compete in knowledge intensive sectors, and currently boast a good research and innovation climate with a progressive rate of digitisation. This contributes significantly to delivering growth and prosperity in regions across Europe.
A well-developed infrastructure for ideas, goods, services, people and capital is a prerequisite for a well-functioning single market. The public sector plays an important role regarding to the expansion of digital infrastructure. Similar to railways, road networks, ports and airports; broadband is a key part of societal infrastructure. High-speed networks are a prerequisite for meeting the challenges and opportunities of the data economy.
The Stockholm Region EU Office is continuously working for
– The further development of the EU Digital Single Market.
– Promoting regional and local experiences of digitalisation in EU decision-making processes.
