Thank you to the FRIENDS OF EUROPE for inviting me.
I would like to present what are our chalenges and oportunities to improve colective inteligence sharing within and among the Member states.
The next ten years will be Europe’s Digital Decade. EU will invest 20% of the after COVID-19 recovery plan.
Particularly during the epidemic and lockdown our lives continue through digital communication channels. This virus changes our habits and the way we socialize.
As a European Citizens we would like that the new digital technologies benefit all of us in our workplace and at home.
We need to reinvent our mindset within the digital reality and to find out the positive effect in our daily live. Weneed to build public awareness and acceptance of the new technologys. We need to grow digital literacy.That’s why a focus on education and on lifelong learning is necessary. European policy is very much oriented towards creating the convinient environment for the partnership . Today the most ekciting result of the partnership is the developed covid vaccines which is historic succes for humanity.
There are some misused of the digitalisation and AI too , like fake news and possible privacy control. As a citizen we are afraid of being under control all the time.
But still – how could we improve collective intelligence?
European Commission recently propose a new partnership – to boost collaboration within academia, research and industry, for the better tackle health emergencies and to support green and digital transition. Besides there is the more opportunity :
The first : is the Presidency of the European Council ,this year Portugal and Slovenia are in charge. One of the priority will be a green and digital transition . The second opportunity is European Parliament and national parliaments because the parliament are the democratic elected body and the Members have a direct contact with the citizens which is crucial for the awareness and trust among them. The third opportunity is with the Former Members Association of the European Parliament through EP to Campus program for the Universities. Universities can apply the Association on which European policy would like to have the lecture. It could be also the policy related to digitalization . The 4th possibility it’s Erasmus program and Jean Monnet program. The young students actually are the glue of all European nations and they were born in the digital cradle . The last but not the least is health sector where the citizens are building the trust related to artificial intelligence and digitalization with their personal experience.
Partnership, knowledge, awareness and trust will improve collective intelligence within and among the Member States FOR THE GOOD OF ALL OF US.
