Information and Communication Technologies are expected to play a major part in driving forward the growth of the EU economy, especially in terms of GDP and employment. It is estimated that a quarter of the European Union's GDP growth is a direct result of ICT.
The i2010 agenda calls for a "Single European Information Space" which would offer affordable and secure high-bandwidth communications, rich and diverse content and digital services. That can be greatly enhanced through the use of the new version of the internet protocol (IPv6). i2010 also looks to creating an inclusive European Information Society through sustainable growth and development with the focus being on better participation and the inclusion of society as a whole which will result in greater use and demand for Internet services.
The European Commission with its Action Plan of 2008 to support the deployment of IPv6 in Europe wishes to support in practice the next generation of Internet and networks that will contribute to the Lisbon Strategy objectives.
