    trends across different sectors.

    effective and wide take up of ICT in Europe, in
    order to propose policy responses
  • ICT Task Force established (meeting on 6/6/2006)
  • continue e-BSN, e-Skills, legal and
    standardisation actions.

  • Mission to monitor, analyse and compare ICT
    uptake and e-business development in different
    sectors of the European economy not sectors
  • Objective to provide reliable results, based on
    commonly accepted methodologies, which are not
    readily available from other sources and would
    trigger the interest of policy-makers,
    researchers, and other e-business stakeholders
    for more in depth analyses.
  • Approach a wide-angle perspective, with
    necessary trade-offs transparently depicted in
    every deliverable, but zooming-in on selected
