Publié le par Jean Arnal


In its annual report on i2010, the EU policy strategy on ICT, the EU Commission analyses the economic impact of deploying ICT (information and communication technology). The focus is to combine R&D, regulatory tools and public-private partnerships to boost the digital economy and ICT deployments, build sustainable economic growth, and fuel innovation and productivity. According to the second report, ICT contributed to about 50% of EU growth, and grew faster than than EU' s overall economy. It is good, but not enough, according to the EU Commissioner. Fragmented regulation remains the main barrier for building pan-European services that could profit from economies of scale and compete on the world market.
