Digital Entrepreneurship in Europe

-
Elisabeth-Herz-Kremenak-Saal
Plenary / Panel
english language

Novel technologies are rapidly gaining relevance on the European market. However, the cloud, big data, social media and mobile innovations mostly appear as external “intruders” rather than European success stories. How can we compete in the transition to the digital era? Is the Digital Single Market the universal remedy? Should we rethink our strategies for digital entrepreneurship?
