With its Communication on the Digital Compass 2030 the European Commission provides an overview of the next steps it wants to take in the digital sector. This includes plans for education, health and enterprise policy, infrastructure and the public sector. The international dimension of the digital sector and the necessity of digital partnerships are also addressed.
AK welcomes the Commission's plans in the area of digitisation in principle, but sees a number of content-related gaps in the discussion, such as data protection in the individual areas addressed and the lack of a human-centred approach in the digital transformation. AK also demands that the social partners must be fully involved in all topics.
