To ensure that European businesses, governments and citizens make the best use of ICT in order to improve industrial competitiveness, support growth and create jobs, to address key societal challenges, and to promote an open and competitive digital economy while emphasizing ICT as a driver of inclusion and quality of life.
A key element of the renewed Lisbon partnership for growth and jobs, i2010 will build towards an integrated approach to information society and audio-visual media policies in the EU.
i2010 proposes three priorities for Europe's information society and media policies:
- a Single European Information Space
- strengthening Innovation and Investment in ICT research
- an Inclusive European Information Society

Abstract

The i2010 initiative is the EU's strategy for the European information society up to 2010. As the first Commission initiative to be adopted as a component of the EU's renewed Lisbon Strategy, it intends to match the increasing digital convergence and the relevance of ICT in general with policy convergence at the EU level. The aim is to create a coherent package of measures across policy areas to support the development of the digital economy in the EU.
The key activities of i2010 will be fully integrated and consistent with the new Lisbon governance cycle.
i2010 will rest on three main three priorities for Europe's information society and media policies:
(A) the completion of a Single European Information Space which promotes an open and competitive internal market for information society and media (including an efficient and appropriate regulatory environment for an open and competitive single market for the digital economy);
(B) strengthening Innovation and Investment in ICT research to promote growth and more and better jobs;
(C) achieving an Inclusive European Information Society that promotes growth and jobs in a manner that is consistent with sustainable development and that prioritises better public services and quality of life. Among others, initiatives will focus on caring for people in an ageing society, safer, smarter and cleaner cars and digital libraries.
i2010 intends to contribute to a better exploitation of the ICT potential in the EU and to help the EU to catch up with its main competitors in this area (especially the US and Japan, which both have higher broadband penetration rates).
i2010 is designed to help European markets, consumers and economic actors to meet the challenges of the digital economy, to make the best possible use of ICT and to maintain and improve Europe's leading position in cutting-edge information technology.
The broad aims of i2010 in the three priority areas are:
Priority A: The Single European Information Space
Review the electronic communications regulatory framework (2006), including the definition of an efficient spectrum management strategy
To create a consistent internal market framework for information society and media services by:
- modernising the legal framework for audio-visual services, starting with a Commission proposal in 2005 for revising the Television Without Frontiers Directive
- analysing and making any necessary adaptations to the community acquis affecting information society and media services (2007)
- actively promoting fast and efficient implementation of the existing and updated acquis governing the information society and media services
- To provide continued support for the creation and circulation of European content
- To define and implement a strategy for a secure European Information Society (2006)
- To identify and promote targeted actions on interoperability, particularly digital rights management (2006/2007)

Priority B: Investment in research and innovation
- To propose an 80% increase in Community ICT research support by 2010 and invite the member states to do the same
- To prioritise strategic ICT research around FP7 key technology pillars (2007)
- To launch research and deployment initiatives to overcome key bottlenecks that require both technological and organisational solutions (2006)
- To define complementary measures to encourage private investments in ICT research and innovation (2006)
- To make specific proposals on an Information Society for all in the Community Strategic Guidelines on Cohesion 2007-2013
- To define e-business policies aiming to remove technological, organisational and legal barriers to ICT adoption with a focus on SMEs
- To develop tools to support new patterns of work that enhance innovation in enterprises and adaptation to new skill needs

Priority C: Societal objectives
- To issue policy guidance on e-accessibility and coverage of broadband (2005)
- To a dopt an Action Plan on e-Government and strategic orientations on ICT-enabled public services (2006)
- To launch demonstrator projects to test, at an operational scale, technological, legal and organisational solutions to bringing public services on-line (2007)
- To set-up three 'quality of life' ICT flagship initiatives as initial steps (2007)
i2010 is a a new integrated Information Society policy approach designed to contribute to the core Lisbon goal of sustained growth and jobs and to maintain Europe's leading position in international ICT competition.
Within i2010, the European Commission will be in charge of making proposals to update the regulatory frameworks for electronic communications, information society and media services to exploit to the full the internal market; of stimulating investment in strategic research and to overcome bottlenecks to widespread ICT innovation by means of Community financial instruments; and of supporting policies to address eInclusion and quality of life.
At the same time, the Member States define Information Society Priorities through their existing National Reform Programmes, stressing the importance of ICT uptake, ICT infrastructure and ICT for jobs and education.
