Cross cutting / other issues
Deployment of Internet standards and ICT Best Practices from a societal, economic and security angle. Weaknesses and flaws in the Internet, ICT products and services make the whole of society vulnerable for attacks. To deploy existing standards and best practices on a mass scale would make all users more secure and less vulnerable. It could be a competitive edge for Europe were it deploy faster.

Cross cutting / other issues
The Internet stands in fear of splintering, if it has not done so already. Is this à priori a bad thing for Europe? or could it have advantages as well?

Human rights & privacy
Issue: Personal Data Sovereignty - Evolving the logic of a physical passport to a digital framework where people can be placed at the center of their data. It is time for the advent of Personal Data Sovereignty -- when the digital environment serves to enhance human interests (of humans and their meaningful groupings). By creating tools for citizens, such as data governance frameworks and machine readable privacy terms for all, society can evolve the logic of a physical passport to a digital framework where people can be placed at the center of their data. Beginning with children to strengthen GDPR and Privacy by Design focused legislation, the creation of such tools allow individuals (or their caregivers) to better understand and influence the collection and use of their (or their children’s) data, as well as access and meaningfully curate and share their data as they choose. While people may still be tracked by advertising or government surveillance oriented tools, Personal Sovereignty provides all humans with their digital voice at an algorithmic level to face the future as empowered and proactive participants in digital democracy.

Innovation & economic issues
Citizens should be able to trust the digital services they are using. The most important building blocks to guarantee this, are open source software and strong end-to-end encryption without compromises. The development and funding of open source software and open data is important to guarantee the independence of educational institutions, small businesses and the public sector from a big software monopolists.

Development of IG ecosystem
There is a misconception that digitization leads to a more sustainable society. Despite some positive aspects, digitization as such does not improve the ecological footprint. For this reason, the information and communication industry needs to make a permanent commitment to resource protection beyond 2020. Especially data centers, have a massive energy consumption. Investments into more sustainable technologies like fiber optic cables instead of the mobile network can help to minimize the energy consumption and contribute to a sustainable digitization and must be promoted by the state.
