The Digital Champions (DC) Expert Group held its seventh meeting in Brussels on 29 September 2014. The meeting with VP Neelie Kroes took place from 8:45h to 9:45h.

The Digital Champions also participated in the Digital Action Day organised by DG CONNECT on the same date.

The focus of the discussion was on the functioning of the Digital Champions group over the past years, the main challenges they have faced in their work and how to address them in the future. One of the main hurdles for some of the Champions is the lack of political and financial support at national level. This is an issue which should be further explored in broader terms, as well as the possibilities for financial support from the European Commission within existing legal and administrative constraints.
