How is Europe faring on startups? A lot has been spoken about the need to do more to improve the ecosystem for startups, entrepreneurs and “scale-up” organisations. But is anything really happening in the 28 European Union member states where progress most needs to be seen? In this ground-breaking study, the European Digital Forum looks at The 2016 Startup Nation Scoreboard: How European Union Countries are Improving Policy Frameworks and Developing Powerful Ecosystems for Entrepreneurs. The policy brief sets up a framework for tracking progress on the Startup Manifesto, a 22-action roadmap published in 2014 by eight leading European entrepreneurs. The product of a unique crowdsourcing exercise involving national experts in 25 countries, the new study looks at progress from a policymaking standpoint. Who is doing most to create a better environment for startups? And who needs to do more? The 2016 Startup Nation Scoreboard was formally launched at CeBIT 2016, the global event for digital business in Hanover, Germany, in the presence of Günther Oettinger, European commissioner for digital economy and society, who joined the Opening Plenary hosted by the European Digital Forum.

Fiscal repair and structural reforms were difficult. But the bitter medicine has worked. The systemic euro crisis is history. Most reform countries at the periphery are reaping the rewards of their efforts. For the reform countries, the risks ahead are mostly political rather than economic. This is the main finding of The 2015 Euro Plus Monitor: More Progress, New Risks, the authoritative annual survey published each year by the Lisbon Council and Berenberg. The study deploys a unique methodology to examine the fundamental health and measure the adjustment progress of the 18 euro members as well as Poland, Sweden and the United Kingdom. It asks, who is reforming fastest? And who needs most to reform even faster? - See more at: http://www.lisboncouncil.net/publication/publication/131-the-2015-euro-plus-monitor-.html#sthash.NPRit0tr.dpuf

The European Digital Forum launches Government of the Future: How Digital Technology Will Change the Way We Live, Work and Govern at the eGovernment Conference Luxembourg 2015, a minister-level informal gathering hosted by the Government of Luxembourg, acting as Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Written by Sergey Filippov, associate director of the Lisbon Council and former professor of innovation management at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, it imagines a world where citizens and governments collaborate to "co-create" public services through the use of radically enhanced approaches, such as "government as a platform"-based services and blockchain technology. It analyses “best-in-class” e-government initiatives in an array of countries and speculates on how Europe would look if today's best practices were broadly disseminated and embraced at scale. http://www.lisboncouncil.net/publication/publication/130-government-of-the-future-.html
