Readie brings European governments together to share digital policies and discuss new ideas

Specifically, we collaborate with policymakers and ministers that lead digital transformation programmes and develop digital economy policies.

We connect our policymaker network with industry experts, leading economists, researchers, and digital businesses to tackle current challenges and explore new ideas to harness the opportunities of digital transformation.

  • How can governments build thriving digital economies?
    How can digital policies support skilled, confident and inclusive societies?
    How can digital policies equally benefit society, entrepreneurs and businesses?
    How might governments design better policies?

Readie’s areas of focus

Our areas of focus include digital skills, the future of work, disruptive businesses and the digitalisation of traditional industries. We help policymakers make the most of Europe’s digital economy by:

  • Sharing practical ideas and innovative approaches to digital policymaking
    Producing research and analysis about digital transformation
    Connecting governments, businesses and experts through our summits, roundtables and workshops.

Why this is important

Mobile apps are helping monitor health, manage finances and navigate cities. Robots are supporting children in schools, providing companionship for the elderly, and performing surgery with more accuracy than humans. Self-driving cars are predicted to reduce road fatalities by 90%. Sharing economy platforms and online businesses are empowering people to earn extra income like never before.

European governments have established digital policy units to tackle these challenges unseen before. These teams, along with other agencies and businesses, are creating brand new policies and initiatives for the digital future. But it’s not easy to find existing case studies, examples of best practice and learn from what has worked – and what has not.
