The Going Local Austria event took place on 26 June 2015 in Vienna (read programme). The focus was on central themes of the Digital Single Market Strategy:
- improving access to digital goods and services for consumers and business,
- e-skills and jobs and
- improving the design of the conditions for the success of digital networks and services.
The event offered Austrian stakeholders the opportunity for direct exchange ideas and information with representatives of the European Commission.
Going Local gives participants the opportunity to have a say in the development of the European Digital Single Market (DSM) strategy and for us to get a better understanding of national and local digital realities.
Senior European Commission staff members organise the Going Local events together with the Commission Representation in your country and the Digital Champion. Sometimes Commissioners working with aspects of the Digital Single Market are also involved.
