As a follow-up to the Digital Decade Communication of 9 March, the Commission is launching a public consultation on the formulation of a set of principles for promoting and supporting EU values in the digital space.
The consultation, open until 2 September, aims to open a broad social debate and gather views from citizens, non-governmental and civil society organizations, businesses, administrations, and all stakeholders. These principles will guide the EU and Member States in designing digital rules and regulations that deliver the benefits of digitization for all citizens.
The contributions to the public consultation will feed into a Commission proposal for a joint inter-institutional declaration on the digital principles of the European Parliament, the Council, and the Commission. The proposal is expected by the end of 2021.
