These are conclusions that we note the two sessions of the summit:

1: Meeting The future of the government

We must bring to the government and the public sector to the digital era to improve public services for citizens and businesses, contain the costs and to promote innovation.

We must make it possible to carry out all digitally-governmental organizations associated with the free movement of persons, capital, goods and services within the single market. Our main focus must be in the areas of mobility (for example, the establishment of corridors connected and automated), health (for example, the empowerment of personalized care) and energy (for example, the use of intelligent technologies for energy efficiency).

We must progressively transform our institutions to meet the challenges that we are confronted with the digital era. We Must incorporate the principles and measures, such as the government at once or a single turn, the digitalization of our national administrations, to facilitate interoperability and public services as cross-border digital.

The digital services and infrastructures, as a secure digital identity and confidence, should be accessible to all eu citizens, irrespective of age or socio-economic origin.

We must make europe a world leader in cyber-safety for the year 2025, with a view to ensuring confidence, trust and the protection of our citizens, consumers and businesses online and allow a free Internet and ruled by law.

We must strengthen the integrity of our free and democratic societies in the digital age, both through the protection of citizens' constitutional rights, freedoms and security, as also the integrity and legitimacy of democratic processes, particularly our elections adequate legal framework, as well as technology.

Europe needs a common european approach of cyber security, including in the area of defence. Europe must function as a single european cyberspace a single market and cyber security, including in terms of the global level certification standards, and joint operational capacity and collective response to crises. Therefore, we must improve our national preparedness and together, crisis management capabilities, emergency support, and reports and analysis of incidents.

Among other measures, it is necessary to establish and coordinate educational and sensitization campaigns that promote good cybersecurity throughout europe. At the same time, we must support the development and widespread training on cybersecurity in all stages of education.

Online platforms have an important social responsibility in terms of protecting users and prevent criminals exploit their platforms. Europe must also remain committed to fighting cybercrime and the use of terrorism in cyberspace.

2: Meeting The future of the economy and society

We must make the eu the ideal home for companies and innovative approaches in the digital age. As digitalisation transforms the sectors, we must ensure that the freedoms of the european union are suitable for the digital era. Europe must aim to be the continent of innovation and the disruptive technologies, taking full advantage of free movement of data.

Complete the single digital market for the year 2018 is an important first step in achieving these objectives, but we must go further. We need to review further eu laws and national policies to ensure that they are suitable for the digital era.

We must seek to provide excellent opportunities for new forms of undertaking, for startups and extensions in the economy of the data. We need to accelerate the digital processing industries through the adoption of the latest technologies, including artificial intelligence and blockchain.

We are committed to an overall change in the tax rules and to the adaptation of our own tax systems to ensure that the benefits generated digitally in the european Union taxed where you create the value.

It is very important that the eu has the best global framework for access and (re) data use for innovative products and services.
