European High Level Conference A Digital Single Market

Venue: Copenhague
Organised by The Danish Business Authority in cooperation and European Commission
From 27/02/2012 to 28/02/2012

The overall aim of this conference is to address the barriers to a fully-fledged Digital Single Market - and to identify the steps needed to achieve this goal. The conference will focus on the establishment of a functioning internal market for e-commerce and digital services, thereby contributing to economic growth and creating new jobs.

The establishment of a functioning Digital Single Market will help achieve greater European competition and productivity - and thus strengthen the EU's global competitiveness and promote economic growth. The European Heads of State and Government have decided that a fully functioning Digital Single Market should be established by 2015.

The opening session will focus on visions for the Digital Single Market and its economic and social benefits. Two high level roundtables and six thematic sessions will help to identify the opportunities and challenges for the realization of the Digital Single Market. A summery session will conclude on key messages and the necessary political steps on Europe's path towards the Digital Single Market.

Minister for Business and Growth, Mr Ole Sohn, will open the conference together with a representative from the European Commission.
