Tue 6 Jan 2015, 14:40

The intergroup on the Digital Agenda is an informal network of Members of European Parliament, cross-party and cross-nationality, who are interested in digital technologies and in how they can benefit society. “We recognise the profound impact that digital technologies have on the lives of people. We wish to take an active role in shaping that impact and smart policies by improving the knowledge of the functioning and impact of technologies,” says Schaake (ALDE). Weidenholzer (S&D) adds: “The Digital Single Market offers great opportunities. This intergroup will strive for policies that realise the potential while ensuring the privacy and data protection rights of European citizens.”
