Speaking at the EC Innovation Convention, Telefonica’s Chief Commercial Digital Officer Eduardo Navarro told delegates that after years of seeing technology and talent head away from Europe, the region is now starting to regain its momentum as new opportunities arise in ICT.

Telefonica has taken advantage of its attendance at the EC Innovation Convention in Brussels to deliver its message that Europe urgently needs collective action and an open approach towards education, digital innovation and entrepreneurship if it hopes to regain its momentum in the global digital revolution.

The company’s chief commercial digital officer, Eduardo Navarro, told delegates at the triennial event that Europe needs to make the best of its own strengths. “Europe can, and should, be riding high on the next wave of innovation,” said Navarro, adding that “education, particularly teaching digital literacy, will play a major role in transforming society in a way that we can achieve growth in digital skills and entrepreneurship in a sustainable way.”

He also introduced Telefonica’s ´Open Future´ project to help young people, startups and entrepreneurs develop new innovations and generate growth in Europe´s digital industry. The public-private initiative aims to promote open technology for everyone and actively support and fund entrepreneurialism and the teaching of digital skills in schools. Open Future, which has already launched in the Andalucia region of Spain, will create Centres of Excellence for entrepreneurship and support crowdworking initiatives linked to the EC´s FI-WARE project. The agreement reached with the regional government in Andalucia is the largest ever between a Spanish region and a private company in support of entrepreneurship and the goal is to convert Andalucia into a benchmark for ICT innovation in southern Europe.

“To accelerate this momentum, we need to ensure that technology is open and available to everyone,” said Navarro. “Education, particularly teaching digital literacy, will play a major role in transforming society in a way that we can achieve growth in digital skills and entrepreneurship in a sustainable way. Our vision is that European corporations – big and small – can work together with educational institutions in helping this important evolution.”

The telco believes that it is not solely the role of policy makers or politicians to make innovation and growth happen, but rather a job for all businesses, schools and universities across Europe.
