Digital Agenda for Europe
Digital Agenda for Europe (DAE)
The Digital Agenda for Europe (DAE) is one of seven flagship initiatives under the Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. The DAE focuses on the 21st century technologies and online services that will enable Europe to boost job creation, promote economic prosperity and improve the daily lives of EU citizens and businesses in a variety of ways. Successful delivery and implementation of the DAE in Ireland is therefore a priority of the Government. The overall aim of the Digital Agenda is "to deliver sustainable economic and social benefits from a digital single market based on fast and ultra fast internet and interoperable applications."
The DAE identifies seven areas for action and flowing from these are some 100 follow up actions for both the Commission and Member States. Many of the actions cut across a number of Government Departments. The Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources coordinates reporting progress on the implementation of the DAE across Government to the EU Commission.
