Herve Le Guyader Gdansk conference on Innovation for Digital Inclusion

Digital Inclusion is a very serious issue to solve in order to achieve any kind of intelligent, sustainable and inclusive growth for Europe.

EU Regions have a pivotal role to play for they typically represent "the level that makes sense" within the necessary subsidiarity chain, that goes from the European level to the Commune.

In combination with private sector and civil society, Regions should fully harness the opportunities offered by key EU instruments such as Structural Funds.

The "Innovation Union" strategy may represent for them a real opportunity to combine research and deployment, projet and policy, agility and robustness.
