In December 2019 the European Commission published the “European Green Deal”, whose main objective is to transform the EU’s economy so as to reach a sustainable future. This communication is a strategy to accomplish the Sustainable Development Goals, introduced by the United Nations in its agenda for 2030. In addition, the EU wants to achieve these goals throughout a just transition, this means, in a fair and inclusive way, without leaving anyone aside. On the other hand, the new technologies play also a key role in this new project since they will help in the research process and in the promotion of innovation.In this way, we can understand that the EU is expressing its concern about the future of the economy and social welfare.
