The High Level Industry Advisory Group on the Information Society, set up by the European Commission in 1996, has produced a short report containing a number of key recommendations for action.

- Telecommunication liberalization;
- Education and training;
- Electronic commerce;
- Convergence;
- Public administrations;
- Standardization;
- Globalization;
- SMEs;
- Research and development;
- Satellites;
- Awareness building.

The Group was set up by the European Commission, on the initiative of Commissioner Martin Bangemann, in order to allow European industry to provide its input to the development of the European Union's Information Society policy. It consists of 30 top executives from industry sectors concerned by the rapid emergence of the Information Society and related markets. These include representatives of telecommunications operators and equipment manufacturers, the computer hardware and software industry, electronics groups, publishers, broadcasters and audiovisual content providers.
