About this Blog


Welcome to the EU Policy Blog, Microsoft Brussels’ platform for providing insights on the issues that impact Europe’s future in the digital age. This is a forum to discuss the latest trends, research and regulatory developments which are shaping how European citizens, businesses, governments and societies use technology to achieve more every day.

Our goal is to contribute to a broader debate around the issues that matter for Europe’s digital future – whether that’s boosting digital skills amongst European youth or laying out our commitments to data privacy and security. We hope you enjoy these opinions and we invite you to share your thoughts with the Microsoft EU policy team on Twitter and stay up to date with relevant conversations by following #tech4EU.
