From commerce to entertainment, from co-production to data analysis, from remote working (or co-working) to e-government and e-payments, from cloud storage to smart homes or supply-chains, new possibilities are endless. However, many challenges remain, for instance in terms of concentration of power (and data) in the hands of a few players, as well as in terms of interoperability, digital access and skills, privacy and security, whilst it is difficult to predict which technologies will act as game-changers in terms of new products and services, but also in terms of increased well-being of EU citizens and increased competitiveness of companies.


The topics to be investigated will be:

  1. New technologies for disrupting the economy: business, employment and skills
  2. New technologies disrupting the public sphere: information, democracy and new media
  3. New technologies blurring online and offline worlds and disrupting the personal sphere
