Abstract

The Internet is changing the world we live in, and the challenge for Europe is to embrace the digital age and become a truly knowledge-based economy. The way in which the European Union manages this transition will help determine our quality of life, our working conditions and the overall competitiveness of our industries and services.

"eEurope" is the EU's scheme for guiding this process of change and for modernising our education and vocational training systems to ensure digital literacy at school and in the workplace. eEurope and the related education strategy have become the driving force behind the EU�s push to become the most competitive knowledge-based economy in the world by 2010.

This brochure is published by the European Commission's Press & Communications DG in the series 'Europe on the Move' (Catalogue number: NA-40-01-989-EN-C). It is initially available only in English, but will later be published in the other ten EU official languages too.
