Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] The remaining part of the proposed 9.2 billion euros would be invested in the joined-up infrastructure needed for pan-European digital public services. Funding, primarily through grants, would be provided to projects which help to build the digital single market. Such projects would make it easier to provide cross-border online public services: whether setting up a business, authenticating identity, delivering government or health services, accessing cultural heritage, setting up an intelligent energy network, or responding to cyber-threats across borders. By ensuring systems can talk to each other, and avoiding fragmentation, we can best serve the needs of an increasingly mobile population.
