Information society - Policy synthesis of EU research results

Funded under: FP5-IST


This report was commissioned by the European Commission’s Directorate General for Research in order to provide an overview of the results of social research addressing issues of relevance to Information Society policy commissioned under the 4th and 5th Framework Programmes. The aim was not to give a complete summary of all the research results from a large and varied body of research from twenty three separate projects, but rather to identify those issues arising from the research that are of specific relevance to the development of public policy at European, national and regional levels throughout the EU. Social research commissioned by DG Research under its TSER and IHP programmes has produced a number of useful insights for policy-makers not just in the field of ‘Information Society policy’ but also in innovation policy, regional development policy, labour market policy, training and skills policy, education policy and social policy.
