Vision Smart Nation 2030: Belgian and European ambitions… what about the means?

Belgium sets out ten ambitions for a path and a horizon (2030) “with the aim of contributing to Belgian and European digital sovereignty”.[1]  We decided to take a quick look at this vision, because we see it as a weak signal of European ownership, on a national and supranational scale. Belgium is an influential nation within the EU and it is trying to develop a vision for the future in a strategic sector, which we can only welcome. The approach was politically innovative by setting up Digital Minds, a team made up of twenty people from civil society to advise the executive personnel on digital aspects. This was nevertheless marked by a resignation.
