It aims to foster inclusive digital economies societies in which all citizens - notably women and young people - have equal opportunities to participate in the digital world.
Get to know who’s behind the D4D Hub
The D4D Hub was launched in December 2020 by the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, European Heads of State and D4D Hub partners. The D4D Hub serves as a strategic multi-stakeholder platform that fosters digital cooperation between the Team Europe and its global partners.
