The Digital Single Market aims to ensure that the internal market in the digital world becomes a reality. Laying down and committing to a set of fundamental rights to businesses and citizens in a digital world will facilitate the process.

Today, many services, whether public or private, are delivered online. Online creation of companies is more and more common but startups still need to cope with 28 different national regimes and not all services are available online. Some key principles could facilitate the life and reduce the burden on citizens or businesses in their interactions with public administrations. Providing information only once to a public administration could cut the red tape.

This workshop will present real life examples of Digital Public Services and how they are essential to the establishment and proper functioning of the Digital Single Market. It will also debate and provide a priority list of Digital Rights for citizens and businesses when interacting with Government.

The audience will have the possibility to propose their own ideas and debates others. At the end of the workshop the audience will be offered to vote the 3 top priorities. A final ranked list of principle will be presented.
