About DFS

Digital Future Society is a programme supported by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Business in collaboration with Mobile World Capital Barcelona that seeks to build an inclusive, equitable and sustainable future in the digital era.

The programme engages policymakers, civic society organisations, academic experts and citizens to respond to the challenges of the digital age. Digital Future Society works in four key areas: public innovation, digital trust and security, equitable growth, and inclusion and citizen empowerment.
