While infrastructures, connectivity and new services are the backbone of the Digital Single Market, at the same time citizens’ trust on the growing number of digital devices, channels, services and practices has become a key issue to ensure full digital citizenship in Europe.
The workshop is devoted to discuss the evolution of European and national legislation and practices aimed at strengthening the Single Digital Market in a holistic way, including the adoption of pan-European initiatives to boost the diffusion of ultra broadband and digital security of all critical infrastructures.
