What is the EU4Digital networking activity all about? How does it contribute to eTrade?
The EU4Digital eTrade thematic area’s networking activities are about building connections and sharing information about trends and actions. EU4Digital has many eTrade activities and pilot projects that require cross-country collaboration. The sharing of information is therefore vital to raise awareness of eTrade issues, stimulate the implementation of reforms, and align activities among international stakeholders.
International networking activities include online events such as awareness building sessions, workshops and consultations. There are also study visits – to observe, examine and discuss piloted solutions, or to examine existing solutions and best practices outside Eastern partner countries. And there are events to exchange contacts and share information about trends in eTrade. These activities may target policy makers, investors, digital vendors, service providers, R&D centres, academia, public administration, agencies and other eTrade stakeholders. Examples of EU4Digital eTrade networking events include: an awareness-raising session about eFTI Regulation updates and EU Member State preparations; an eCommerce accelerator awareness-raising session including EU eCommerce updates and cooperation opportunities with Ecommerce Europe; and a site visit to the Ukraine-Romania border in preparation for an eCustoms pilot.
