About Makers & Shapers
The importance of a strong digital Europe is widely acknowledged and best achieved by makers (industry) and shapers (authorities) working together to create a sovereign European digital reality with products, services and regulation that serve citizens, respect European values, drive innovation and provide equal opportunity for everyone.
As part of our 10th anniversary, the Makers and Shapers journey features thought leading conversations with captains of industry, high-profile start-up executives, and investment experts (the Makers) as well as EU and national policymakers (the Shapers). They share their vision on key areas of digital innovation and the way forward to a strong digital Europe.
Makers and Shapers shall inspire entrepreneurs, and engage innovators, investors and policy makers in Europe’s effort to be a major player in digital innovation. Our video journey is a testimony for the need to overcome fragmentation in Europe. It is a manifestation of the strength of collaboration, gives a sense of belonging to a pan-European innovation ecosystem and strengthens confidence in a strong digital Europe.
