The 2015 European Digital Forum brings European web and technology entrepreneurs and leading digital-economy enterprises together with policymakers, think tankers and thought leaders for a focused, high-level discussion on next steps in the European Digital Single Market programme. Participants will discuss the potential of technology and entrepreneurship to shape innovation-led, digitally powered growth, the regulatory framework that would place Europe in the best position to deliver and the way digitally-led entrepreneurship could power a European renaissance. Just days after the European Commission announces a new five-year framework, Andrus Ansip, vice-president of the European Commission for the digital single market, delivers The 2015 Guglielmo Marconi Lecture to a high-level audience of entrepreneurs, startups, policymakers and key players in the European digital economy.
