Spanish Presidency official site.
After Sweden with the last presidency of the Council of the European Union, mainly under the Treaty of Nice, Spain?s presidency website ? the first with the Lisbon Treaty in force from day one ? paradoxically feels like a throwback to old times: European Digital Agenda in 2010 on first day of Spanish EU Council presidency (1 January 2010).

In the blog post European Digital Agenda in 2010 on first day of Spanish EU Council presidency (1 January 2010), we mentioned the TTE Council?s 18 December 2009 conclusions on the post i2010 information society strategy for the European Union and tried to find out how they would be carried on by the Spanish presidency in 2010. The summary of Spain?s work programme was far from conclusive, so we advanced to the [Draft] programme of the presidency trio.
The previous Grahnlaw blog post EU: Last call for copyright comments! Consultation closing (30 December 2009) was, in its own humble way, an example of European cross-border networking in the digital age.
