The main objective of this study is to develop and build a well-structured information collection and monitoring instrument on the national initiatives taken to digitise the industry covering all EU Member States.
This study reviews the achievements of the Digitising European Industry initiative and its different pillars, launched by the Commission to foster the roll-out and coordination of national initiatives to digitise the industry.
The study involves Latvia national desk research, the survey and the country report.

The Digitising European Industry (DEI) initiative was launched by the European Commission in April 2016 to reinforce the EU’s competitiveness in digital technologies and to ensure that every industry in Europe – whichever the sector, wherever the location, whatever the size – can fully benefit from digital innovations. Within this framework, reporting and monitoring the development of national initiatives on digitalisation is key for the implementation of the different actions lines of the DEI initiative. Building on a first analysis of national initiatives conducted in 2017, the objective of this study is to build a well-structured collection, monitoring and analysis instrument covering the whole European Union.

The report is available on the website of the European Commission.
