  • RISULTATO

The objective of this project is to develop the coordination of the research in the economics of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Europe.

ICT have been a major driver of productivity and growth over the last two decades. Today ICT are one of the keys to emerging from the economic crisis and putting countries back on a path to sustainable growth. This project would contribute to achieve these objectives.

Our proposal is to bring together the main research groups into a network which would:
- Enhance our understanding of the economic effects of ICT; and
- Increase the policy relevance of the research in this field.

The project focuses on four areas:
- ICT, Growth and Productivity;
- ICT, R&D and Intangibles;
- ICT-enabled innovation; and
- ICT diffusion to the Economy.

To achieve its objectives, the project would rely on:
- a network of over 30 research institutions with an established research record on the economics of ICT;
- a coordination group composed of 4 leading institutions;
- a series of 8 cross-thematic workshops;
- a series of 4 issues papers and 4 assessment papers;
- an interactive website;
- a final report.

The duration of the project is 2 years.
