It's the clear message ringing through the halls at CeBIT 2016: The digitization of services in Europe is gathering pace, whether it be securely sending medical data between healthcare providers and authorities or the viability of using electronic ID cards to set up a bank account online. The EU has seen the signs of the times and wants to take a more active role in tackling the challenges associated with the digitization of the economy.
At the heart of everything is the flow of data across borders. Visitors to CeBIT will be able to explore exciting solutions designed to support a fully functional European Digital Single Market at the "Digital Public Services across Borders" stand, which is being organized by the Ministry of Justice of North Rhine-Westphalia in cooperation with the European Commission and others including the e-SENS and e-CODEX pilot projects. Experts will be on hand at the multimedia stand to discuss in detail the digital building blocks on show. One of the most electrifying topics is how these new solutions will help companies and public bodies set up cross-border digital public services and what this will mean for Europe's citizens.
