Nothing will ever be the same again…

In light of the unprecedented health crisis and the bipolarisation of the world between China and the United States, Europe must build an alternative path marked by its values and supported by its strengths, particularly in terms of innovation.

The 2021 edition of the DigiWorld Yearbook provides a comprehensive overview of the impact of digital technology on our society, presents a summary of the publications produced by IDATE DigiWorld experts and is based on contributions from its Executive Clubs in Paris, London, Brussels and Rabat.
