European Leadership in the Digital Economy (cepStudy)


Europe is falling further and further behind the United States and China, particularly in the areas of data economy and cloud computing. A cepStudy commissioned by the software provider SAP identifies three priorities and proposes seventeen detailed recommendations for policy measures that will enable the EU to take a leading role in the digital economy.


It will be important for the EU to maintain effective competition on cloud and digital markets, to implement a digital European industrial policy and, in particular, to create an EU framework for secure and trustworthy cloud computing.
