The Visby Agenda - new ICT policies in the EU?

The current EU presidency, Sweden, recently organized a meeting to discuss the future of the European information society (Visby Agenda-Creating Impact for an eUnion 2015). The main goal for the event was to reach a consensus on a new European ICT agenda. A central ambition is to enhance the use of ICT to promote sustainable and more environmental production and consumption. The Presidency Conclusions from Visby express the ambition for Europe to become “the most dynamic and competitive knowledge based economy”. This is to be accomplished by generating innovative ICT services and at the same time seeing to that Europe’s environmental responsibilities are fulfilled. It is welcomed that the need to switch from a supply-perspective to a service-generating demand side perspective, since this is essential for ensuring that future EU ICT development is efficient. Further, this implies that the EU has recognized the potential of ICT to not only make its own industry more sustainable, but also to offer environmentally efficient solutions to others.
