  • The European e-Business Report, 2003 edition: A portrait of e-business in 15 sectors of the EU economy. 2nd synthesis report of the e-Business W@tch, July 2003


The European Commission, Enterprise Directorate General, launched the e-Business Market Watch (the e-Business W@tch) to monitor the growing maturity of electronic business across different sectors of the economy in the European Union. Since January 2002 the e-Business W@tch has been covering seven manufacturing and eight financial and service sectors. Results are published in quarterly sector impact studies and newsletters, along with a set of statistics and other material on e-business.

This is the second and final Synthesis Report of the first period of the e-Business W@tch. Part A summarises the statistical picture, focusing on results of the e-Business Survey carried out in March 2003, and features an international e-business outlook. Part B of the report presents a synopsis of the Sector Impact Studies, focusing on the recent series of seven sector studies with 2003 data that were not included in the first Synthesis Report in March 2003. Part C adds contributions on specific electronic business issues from various authors, for example on internet trading platforms and on the challenges for small and medium-sized enterprises.

The (1st Synthesis Report) is also available in CORDIS Document Library.
