The Estonian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, in cooperation with the President of the European Council and the European Commission, organised the Tallinn Digital Summit to bring together EU heads of state or government on 29 September 2017.

Technological transformation and digitalisation profoundly affect our jobs, industries, education and welfare systems. As has been stated in the Rome Declaration, it is essential for Europe to embrace technological change in order to ensure a prosperous and sustainable future for our citizens. Additionally, while addressing the challenges of a rapidly changing world, we must offer our citizens both protection and new opportunities.

The Tallinn Digital Summit is a platform that launched high-level discussions on further plans for digital innovation with the aim of keeping Europe ahead of the technological curve while becoming a digital leader, globally, in the years to come.

Summit discussions considered a longer timeframe (up to 2025) and focused on the essential topics of building a digital future for Europe: trust, security, e-government, industry, society and the economy.

Tallinn Digital Summit attendance was by invitation only.
