欧盟22国签署《区块链共同宣言》

4月10日,来自数字技术和电信领域的各种专业人士齐聚欧盟委员会(EC),共同商讨推动创造一个“数字化强盛的欧盟”。

这场为期一天的盛会是欧盟与欧洲联盟理事会轮值主席国保加利亚共同在布鲁塞尔举行的,这场会议具体目的是建立与欧洲不断发展的数字未来有关的官方计划。

继去年在罗马举行“欧盟数字日(EU Digital Day)”之后,今年的重点在于五个优先事项,帮助欧盟成为“一个有竞争力、安全度更高、服务水平更高的社会”。

在简要回顾了自罗马会议以来取得的进展后,该活动在讨论如何为欧盟人工智能倡议铺平道路之前,讨论了如何为“欧盟成员国政府以及工业界、学术界和民间社会的关键利益攸关方”做出承诺,特别是参与欧洲人工智能联盟( European AI Alliance)的问题。

下午的部分时间专门讨论了有关区块链的“资源”部分。该部分的主题是确保欧洲“抓住转型区块链生态系统提供的所有机会”。这一规划包括“在现有领先举措的基础上再接再厉,集中力量,进一步合作采取具体行动,建立欧洲区块链基础设施,为公众提供公共服务”。

这场活动突显了区块链将如何与其他下一代技术合作,创造一个更加数字化、更有能力的欧洲。欧盟委员会副总裁安德鲁斯·安西普(Andrus Ansip)强调了这一观点,他在90年代末担任爱沙尼亚政治家时,也是现任欧洲数字单一市场(DSM)的委员。在他的开幕主题演讲中,他讲到了欧洲的前进道路,他说:

“欧洲科技界认同人工智能和区块链是欧洲最有条件发挥主导作用的领域。然而,我们必须进行投入——无论是政治上还是财政上——这已不是什么秘密。”

在提到在欧洲人工智能倡议和合作方面需要加倍努力之后,安西普说:

“我希望看到欧盟国家对区块链技术做出类似的承诺——现在已经走出实验室,走向主流。”

此外,22个欧洲国家签署了关于建立欧洲区块链伙伴关系的宣言。欧盟数字经济和社会委员Mariya Gabriel表示:

“未来,所有公共服务都将使用区块链技术。区块链是欧洲和成员国重新思考其信息系统、促进用户信任和个人数据保护、帮助创造新的商业机会和建立新的领导领域、造福公民、公共服务和公司的大好机会。今天达成的合作伙伴关系使成员国能够与欧洲委员会合作,将区块链技术的巨大潜力转化为更好的公民服务。”

欧盟区块链观测站已经于今年2月启动,目前已有8000多万欧元投资于区块链相关项目。今天的活动为成员国在2020年底前投资约3亿欧元开发区块链技术的计划提供了一些清晰的说明。

The European Commission (EC) today brought together a diverse group of professionals from the fields of digital technology and telecommunications to further the cause of creating a "digitally strong EU."

Held in conjunction with the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU), the one-day event in Brussels was specifically aimed at forging official commitments related to Europe's evolving digital future.

A follow-up to last year's EU Digital Day, which was held in Rome, this year's focus was on five priorities that will help the EU reach its goal of enabling "a competitive and socially secure society," as well as "better public services and security."

After briefly recapping the progress since Rome, the event broke for coffee (it is Europe, after all) before discussing how to pave the way for the EU Artificial Intelligence Initiative, which focused on securing "commitments from EU Member States governments and key stakeholders from industry, academia and civil society," especially with regard to engaging in the European AI Alliance.

The afternoon was partially devoted to the Blockchain Partnership Initiative, which was featured in a session devoted to ensuring Europe "seizes all the opportunities offered by a transformative blockchain ecosystem." That ambition involves "building on existing leading initiatives, pooling forces and collaborating further on specific actions toward a European Blockchain Infrastructure for services of public interest."

The event highlighted how blockchain will work with other next-generation technologies to create a more digitally friendly and capable Europe. This sentiment was emphasized by EC Vice President Andrus Ansip, who cut his political teeth in the late '90s as an Estonian politician and is also the current European commissioner for the Digital Single Market. In his opening keynote, he addressed Europe's path forward: "The European tech sector identifies AI and blockchain as the areas where Europe is best positioned to play a leading role. However, it is no secret that we have to invest – both politically and financially."

After mentioning a redoubled effort in European AI initiatives and collaboration, Ansip said, "I would like to see EU countries make a similar commitment to blockchain technologies – now moving out of the lab and going mainstream."

In total, 22 European countries signed a declaration on the establishment of a European Blockchain Partnership. Commissioner Mariya Gabriel for Digital Economy and Society, championed the declaration stating:

"In the future, all public services will use blockchain technology. Blockchain is a great opportunity for Europe and Member States to rethink their information systems, to promote user trust and the protection of personal data, to help create new business opportunities and to establish new areas of leadership, benefiting citizens, public services and companies. The Partnership launched today enables Member States to work together with the European Commission to turn the enormous potential of blockchain technology into better services for citizens."

Building from the EU Blockchain Observatory that was launched in February, which already has more than 80 million euros invested in blockchain-related projects, today's event provided some clarity to member countries' intent to invest roughly 300 million euros into developing blockchain technologies by 2020.
