Access & literacy
COVID-19 has highlighted and reinforced inequalities in our society. Measures must therefore be taken to overcome the digital divide. Schools and universities are particularly affected by these developments: The lack of technical equipment and preparation of digital pedagogical concepts has led to increased educational injustice. Students without adequate equipment need special support from the state. Digital literacy among teachers and students must be promoted early on. Progress in e-learning should be maintained even after COVID-19. 
At the same time, low-threshold opportunities must be created for seniors to participate digitally. Campaigns and educational offers are necessary.

Cross cutting / other issues
Addressing competition in the digital ecosystem by large digital companies has become a priority for competition authorities not only in Europe but also around the Globe. EU’s forthcoming Digital Markets Act and Digital Services Act seek to deal with such issues. Discussion on new trends, proposed frameworks and recent developments will identify a good course of action moving forward.

Human rights & privacy
The covid-19 crisis sparked heated debate in Europe and around the world on how to use data in response to a crisis. Broad questions on data use, privacy, access to data and sharing should continue to be discussed, with a long-term view in mind. What did the crisis teach us about data use? Does such a crisis, and the need for preparedness for future crises, change the approach Europe should have domestically and abroad on data access, sharing, and use?

Innovation & economic issues
Digitalization and environmental sustainability go hand in hand: in providing connectivity and developing new solutions, telcos and ICT companies are paving the way for a reduced environmental impact in a whole range of other sectors with technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and big data. How can greater connectivity and digital technologies unleash to reduce our impact on the environment?

Cross cutting / other issues
Post-Pandemic World: Remote working and all-cloud Internet The pandemic led to changes in the way we work. Remote working has become the norm whenever viable (and it's here to stay). To support remote working, all-cloud services have grew to unprecedented levels in the first half of 2020 (and continue growing to this day), radically changing the Internet, it's players, but also where our data resides, who handles it, and naturally, brings many concerns regarding security, confidentiality, privacy, abuse and digital inclusion.

Security & crime
Pandemic boosted cybercrime: Analysis of 2020 trends and recommendations Confinement measures forced many to work online from early 2020. This abrupt change didn't have corresponding staff training/preparation to handle online scams, phishing, ransomware and other types of cybercrime (e.g.email scams increased over 600% in 2020-03).
