Find the most recent information on EU Funding activities in the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) by visiting our ICT in FP7 website , which covers ICT in the 7 th Framework Programme (FP7) 2007 - 2013.



This theme provided the means to include perspectives from social, societal and economic sciences on Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). The objective was to develop a better understanding of the challenges, impacts and opportunities associated with the deployment and use of new IST solutions whether in everyday life, at work or in business. This includes studying the interplay between a broad range of technological, human, social, economic, environmental and policy issues that critically impact effective use and adoption of new IST solutions and developing novel approaches aimed at identifying and quantifying the many new facets and trends of the Information Society and the emerging digital economy. Emphasis was on the macro-economic dimension of the Information Society and on challenges relating to usability and broad adoption of IST solutions with a particular emphasis on design requirements, skill requirements and policy requirements as they relate to job creation, equal opportunities and social inclusion.

Work in this area complemented and supported socio-economic research on more focused work areas of the programme.
