About Readie

Technology is transforming the way we all live and work; creating enormous opportunities for businesses, entrepreneurs, and societies.

Readie is bringing governments together to tackle current challenges and explore cutting edge ideas that are making the most of Europe’s increasingly digital economy.

  • Provide a platform for sharing innovative, user-focused, data-driven policies from around the world that foster digital economic growth.
  • Connect business and governments around key digital policy areas through high level roundtables, summits and networking events.
