EUTA meets Danish officials in Copenhagen

Over the last two days, EUTA and its members convened with officials in Copenhagen, Denmark, to advance discussions on Europe’s digital agenda leading up to 2030.

We met with the Danish Tech Ambassador, officials from the Ministry of Digital Affairs, the Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs, members of the Danish Parliament, and the Danish tech community.

The discussions focused on 

  • Empowering European tech companies to lead globally, 
  • Completing and harmonising the EU Single Market, 
  • Creating cohesive EU laws to reduce administrative red tape, 
  • Ensuring consistent rule enforcement across Member States, and 
  • Developing robust governance to enforce rules fairly, particularly for third-party entities operating within the EU.

To achieve these goals, EUTA proposed:

  • Establishing standards for data reuse while respecting privacy and consumer rights, 
  • Enhancing talent attraction and retention strategies, 
  • Assessing overlapping and conflicting rules alongside their compliance costs,
  • Creating an independent audit body to evaluate the impact of proposed EU rules (EC, EP, Council), 
  • Appointing innovation officers in each ministry and enforcing authority to proactively address emerging trends and collaborate on a multifaceted approach to tech,
  • Allocating appropriate resources and governance mechanisms for strong enforcement, and
  • Establishing Commissioners for enforcement, focused on reducing red tape and creating a strong, harmonised Single Market.
