Main results

Internal market and industry, 27 September

The Council held a public policy debate on strengthening the innovation capacity of EU industry, with emphasis on capturing the potential of digitalisation and Artificial Intelligence.

Capturing the full potential of digitization is crucial for the competitiveness of the EU economy. Our discussions today are a first step towards an EU action plan on artificial intelligence, which will help boost growth and jobs.
