Artificial Intelligence

The European Commission will start work with Member States to have a coordinated plan on AI by the end of 2018. The main aim is to maximise the impact of investment at the EU and national levels, encourage cooperation across the EU, exchange best practices and define the way forward together, so to ensure the EU’s global competitiveness in this sector.

European Harmonised Parcel Label

To meet the growing needs and expectations of today’s consumers, online retailers will greatly benefit from using a European Harmonised Parcel Label. The label will significantly improve the efficiency of cross-border deliveries and return processes, giving retailers and consumers more options in shipping.
The Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC) on the label will enable all partners in the delivery network to use one worldwide unique parcel ID system to link their data to the physical parcel. Parcels will no longer need to be relabeled when they are handed over from one operator to another, resulting in far greater efficiency, lower cost, better traceability, and the ease of adding new services to the delivery service portfolio.
By working together to implement the Harmonised Parcel Label, retailers and carriers will create a parcel stream that accommodates the current and future needs of consumers and all stakeholders in the delivery service industry.

EU distribution of digital skills

According to the Digital Skills Indicator form 2015, 21% of Europeans can be considered as having no digital skills, based on the criterion that they are not using the internet. This figure ranges from 3% in Luxembourg to 44% in Bulgaria and Romania. In eight countries (Portugal, Poland, Croatia, Cyprus, Italy, Greece, Bulgaria and Romania), 30% or more of the population have no digital skills.
  • Level Above Basic
  • Basic Level
  • Low Level
  • No digital skills
Compared to similar statistics from 2012, this means an overall increase of 2% of digitally skilled persons in the EU as a whole and even more in lagging Member States (for instance 6% in Romania). This shows that Europeans are acquiring digital skills, albeit at a gentle pace.
