To Information Society Alliance (EURIM) Members and Observers and European Internet Foundation (EIF) Members

From Malcolm Harbour MEP

Driving the Digital Single Market

As a Director of the Information Society Alliance, (EURIM), I have been asked to jointly lead a new policy initiative to discuss how to join up the many and varied initiatives and directives intended to foster the creation of a globally competitive Digital Single Market into a co-ordinated policy approach at European and Member State level. EIF Members are warmly invited to participate, under the Memorandum of Understanding agreed by the Board this autumn. Please do pass this message on to your London or UK based colleagues if you are personally unable to attend.

The first meeting will be on 23rd January 2012, from 09.30 – 11.00 and will take place in the Palace of Westminster, London.

EURIM plans a series of roundtable meetings with key players, with the objective of producing agreed recommendations on policy priorities. There would be a special focus on co-ordinated actions between different European Commission DGs and Member States.

The initial EURIM programme is based in London and I share the political lead with Lord Erroll (Cross-bencher), Baroness Pauline Neville-Jones (Conservative), the Rt Hon David Blunkett MP (Labour) and Lord Carlile of Berriew (Liberal Democrat). The corporate members of EURIM involved include Alcatel-Lucent, Atkins, BT, Cassidian, CISCO, Citigroup, CSC, DeLaRue, Everything Everywhere, Experian, Fujitsu, Gemalto, Google, IBM, IdenTrust, Logica, Royal Mail, Symantec, Trend Micro and Wave. Over a dozen Trade Associations and Professional Bodies are also observing.

The main objectives on 23rd January will be to identify:

  • the initiatives that need to be subjected to joined-up scrutiny;

  • who is interested in working with who to help achieve this;

  • who is willing to help organise such co-operation.

By the end of the meeting I and my fellow politicians hope to see agreed follow up action plans, to help link up the proposals that come to us for scrutiny and to help us better fulfil our scrutiny responsibilities. 

Please email: eurim@eurim.org for details of location. EURIM is also planning a follow-up event in Brussels.
