The FAST programme launched, within the frame of its work programme 1989-1990, a series of studies concerning the implications of the globalisation of economy and technology for the Scientific and Technological Policy of the European Community. The European economy is undergoing major changes associated with the globalisation of industrial and technological systems. This internationalisation process will have major implications not only within the European Community itself but also in terms of Europe's long term relationships and ties with other major trading blocs and countries. This in turn will have implications for the effectiveness and nature of the Community's science and technology programme. This paper is one of a series of studies that concentrate on the implications of globalisation on selected European countries. The internationalisation of the Italian economy is examined with particular emphasis placed on the process of internationalisation, its structural pattern, the protagonists of such an approach and its effect on tertiary industries.
