A home for society:

Citizens’ rights as network citizens must be maintained and strengthened. Mass surveillance, erosion of civil rights in the digital context. Our aim is to inform, educate and monitor activities that influence European society in terms of social and individual digital sovereignty.

A home for science:

Strong science in the digital age in the information age is a prerequisite for an educated and prosperous digital society, and value creation in the digital age is not possible without strong institutionalised support for strategic investment in science. Our aim is to ensure that the value of science for digital sovereignty is disseminated and that synergies in collaboration can be strengthened.

A home for governments:

European governments must regain the ability to act with sovereignty in the digital environment, which they currently lack with few and far-reaching exceptions. Our aim is to help governments understand how to strengthen their own ability and develop independence from manufacturers and companies.

A home for politics:

Our aim is to help policymakers set an agenda that benefits Europe’s digital sovereignty across the whole spectrum of policy-making.

A home for our rights:

With dozens of legal frameworks inside and outside the European Union and supranational regulations, any activity in the digital field immediately affects several, if not dozens, of legal frameworks, even if you are carrying out an everyday activity such as sending an e-mail. The consequences for individual citizens and for countries and businesses are the intensification of legal risks that implicitly limit their ability to control the legal frameworks in which they consciously operate. Our task is to improve the understanding of the impact of the above context on digital sovereignty, to communicate and disseminate information on this issue and to explore how it could be improved.

A home for economy and added values:

Europe has a fundamental history in terms of the digital economy and value creation. Europe as the continent where historical innovations of the digital age have seen the light of day, e.g. the Polish-British innovations around the first decryption computers, the World Wide Web at CERN or the Linux operating system. All innovations that have profoundly changed the global information age, but the considerable value creation around the above innovations takes place outside Europe. Understanding and identifying how to improve the transition from innovation to value creation in the context of digital sovereignty is an essential part of our mission.
