Pnrr, von der Leyen announces Europe strategy: “Alongside Rome”

Pnrr, Europe is next to Italy. Word from Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, who sent a video message during the event entitled “Regulatory simplification between the present and the future. The challenges of artificial intelligence and the effects on the country’s growth” held at Palazzo Wedekind, in Pomegranate. «I know that Italy is working to improve its competitiveness. Many reforms are in preparation. Together, let’s use the “NextGenerationEU” funds wisely. With smart investments and reforms today, we can build the stronger, more dynamic economy of tomorrow. Europe supports Italy on this journey.”

«Simple, rational and fair regulation can make the governance process effective and the industry competitive. We must make it easier to do business in Europe, innovate and adopt new technologies, including artificial intelligence. Firstly, this means reducing bureaucracy.” This was stated by the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, speaking at the opening of the event organized by the Minister of Institutional Reforms and Regulatory Simplification, Elisabetta Casellati entitled ‘Regulatory Simplification between the present and the future. The challenges of artificial intelligence and the effects on the country’s growth taking place today at Palazzo Wedekind. The European Union, he adds, “has committed to reducing reporting obligations for companies and administrations by at least 25%. We have already presented concrete proposals this autumn. We would like national governments to reflect these efforts. Because reducing bureaucracy is a common commitment of both European and national institutions. At all levels, Artificial Intelligence can make a significant contribution.” In Brussels, for example, notes the president of the European Commission, “we are using Artificial Intelligence to identify the different communication requirements of EU laws. This helps companies save unnecessary work. But that is not all. For each new piece of legislation, an independent committee will carry out a competitiveness audit and consult with our new head of SMEs. The person responsible will ensure that the rules aimed at companies do not affect artisans and small businesses. Secondly, we need to pay special attention to the smallest and most innovative companies. They need less bureaucracy, more capital and qualified people. But they also need infrastructure. Especially for start-ups dealing with Artificial Intelligence, computing power is a vital resource. That’s why, just two weeks ago, the European Commission decided to grant European startups dealing with Artificial Intelligence special access to our EU-funded supercomputers.”
