Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Regulation (EC) No 808/2004 concerning Community statistics on the information society, COM(2008) 677 final

Funded under: FP7-ICT

Abstract

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) account for a significant part of European Union (EU) productivity and Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth and are transforming our societies and economies in a profound and unprecedented way. ICT continues to be a major driver of economic and social modernisation. Community policy has taken a pro-active approach with the aim of building a fully inclusive information society, based on widespread use of information and communication technologies in public services, small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) and in households. Benchmarking is playing a central role in monitoring Community policy and its progress towards the renewed Lisbon aims. This benchmarking requires harmonised, reliable, high quality and timely Community statistics on the information society.
