“Тhe EU Recovery Plan has a core aim to make Europe’s economy more independent and competitive. To get access to the resources Member States have to provide plans that are future-oriented, ones that cater for renewable energy, clean transport and industry, better connectivity, data economy, digital skills among others,” said Eva Maydell, MEP
“This means that investments will focus on digitizing manufacturing, enhancing energy efficiency of the business, implementation of AI powered solutions, unleashing the data potential for achieving goals of common good, such as cleaner air, better urban planning, efficient resource management.
