The EU Digital Single Market and Digital Economy Unit within the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation (DBEI) is responsible for ensuring a whole of Government approach and cross-Government coordination of the Digital Single Market (DSM) agenda and for leading the DSM Inter-Departmental Committee (IDC) ,which is chaired by the Minister for Trade, Employment, Business, EU Digital Single Market and Data Protection, Mr Pat Breen TD.
The IDC consists of a well-coordinated large number of Government Departments and agencies which meets every two months to discuss progress on a wide range of specialist technical DSM issues, both at national and EU level. The key areas for consideration over the coming months include:
- Platforms to Business
- Illegal content online
- Artificial Intelligence
- Digital Europe Programme
The DSM agenda is being driven at EU level by initiatives emerging from the European Commission, which in turn are being addressed at national level by DBEI and a few other key Departments.
