Abstract

The council Resolution of 28 January 2003 on the implementation of the eEurope 2005 Action Plan (5197/03) requested Eurostat to carry out a pilot exercise to calculate a composite indicator on e-business readiness, using data from the enterprise survey conducted in 2003. The components of the e-business readiness composite indicator were listed in the Annex 2.H of that Council Resolution and were grouped by Council into two broad classes of �Adoption� and �Use� of ICT technologies.
Eurostat and the joint Research Centre of the European Commission have jointly implemented the pilot exercise. This report presents the main issue and conclusions of the pilot exercise, based on the analyses performed and on meetings held with experts from the Commission Services (DG ENTR, DG INFSO and DG ESTAT), academia, international organisations and national statistical offices held in Ispra, Luxembourg and Paris
