EU to step up efforts on digitalisation and innovation

At an informal meeting of the EU Member States' Heads of State and Government on 16 May 2018, preceding the Western Balkans summit, the EU Leaders agreed on promoting digitalisation and innovation more strongly. Council President Donald Tusk said that "the EU will step up its efforts on digital and innovation in order to rise to the challenge of technological revolution. You should expect very concrete decisions when we formally meet in June. They will include elements like the establishment of a European Innovation Council in the next MFF, pilot projects including for Artificial Intelligence and more funds for investments. All this will be based on our European values, including full respect of citizens’ privacy, also online."
