The Future of the Information Society in Europe: Contributions to the Debate
IPTS hosted a thematic workshop on the "Socio-Economic Aspects of the Knowledge-based Europe: The role of Information Society Technologies (ISTs)", which set out to diagnose major problems for Europe in achieving the Lisbon 2010 objectives. It also aimed to elaborate on possible new initiatives which would go beyond conventional wisdom and which would contribute to defining Europe's future role in a globalised society, taking into account the socio-economic drivers for better quality of life. After the Workshop, a number of well known economists were commissioned by FISTERA to write papers suggesting possible lines of analysis that were not included in the core FISTERA design, but which can be seen as crucial elements for a holistic view of the future of ISTs. This report summarises and analyses the workshop findings and the views of the economists.
