We live in times when globalisation and the rapid progression of smart technologies bring considerable societal changes. At the same time, humanity is faced with long-term structural global-scale challenges like global warming, rising inequalities, demographic trends, and growing economic disparity. The COVID-19 pandemic came as an additional
challenge, emphasising the importance of leveraging digitalisation and sustainable, green solutions even more. The policy brief summarises the key findings and policy recommendations for the selected EU member states as regards the smart and green society in the European Union context to support appropriate policy responses, which were highlighted in the ELF publication and webinar titled “The Road to a Smart and Sustainable European Union”.
