Ecommerce Europe is glad to announce that it has become an associative member of the European Internet Forum (EIF). EIF and Ecommerce Europe have a shared mission: To support Members of the European Parliament from all political groups in their efforts to shape policy and regulation responsive to the growing potential of the internet and new technologies. Ecommerce Europe looks forward to working together with EIF to ensure that e-commerce is a key theme in these efforts.
An initiative of Members of European Parliament
The European Internet Foundation (EIF) was founded in March 2000 by three Members of the European Parliament from 3 different political groups: James Elles, Erika Mann and Elly Plooij-van Gorsel. In 2014 it changed its name into ‘European Internet Forum’ to better reflect its ‘raison d’etre’.
Working together for more economic growth
EIF’s mission is to help provide European political leadership for the development of European and multilateral public policies responsive to the political, economic and social challenges of the worldwide digital transformation. One of the major drivers of these developments is the rapid speed in which e-commerce is growing. Ecommerce Europe will work together with EIF to help ensure that Europe remains at the forefront of this transformation and benefits fully from it through enhanced global competitiveness and social progress.
Ecommerce Europe as active contributor
EIF focuses on issues and actions at the top of the political agenda and on emerging future trends at both European and global level. Through a continuous programme of live debates and special projects featuring open and inclusive dialogue, EIF creates a space for greater understanding of the digital world. Ecommerce Europe will actively participate in these activities and will help shape EIF’s programme and event agendas.
