Software contributes almost one trillion euros to the EU’s GDP (including indirect and induced effects); if the software industry’s total contribution in Europe were a member state, it would be the EU’s sixth largest economy … To harness the full potential of software-driven innovation, the EU should continue implementing policies that will continue to encourage innovation and capitalise on the contribution of software.
