Going Digital: Making the Transformation Work for Growth and Well-being


The OECD's Going Digital project is a multidisciplinary, cross-cutting initiative that aims to help policymakers in all relevant policy areas better understand the digital transformation that is taking place across different sectors of the economy and society as a whole. It will articulate recommendations for pro-active – rather than reactive – policies that will help to drive greater growth and societal well-being and help address the challenges of slow productivity growth, high unemployment and growing inequality in many countries.

Our ambition

Through the Going Digital project (2017-18) the OECD will exploit its policy breadth and international purview to examine the digital transformation across a spectrum of policy areas, including competition, science and technology, financial markets, education and skills, public governance, and trade. The challenge is to identify the policy mix that maximises the benefits of our increasingly digitalised global economy. Download brochure
