The main goal of this project is to examine the socio-economic impacts of new technologies and services on the nature of work and business enterprise in the next decade, with a specific focus on the identification of new opportunities for economic and employment growth and their drivers and barriers. The project will:
· analyse emerging patterns in the development of the digital economy in Europe and the application of the new technologies to advanced ("second-generation") services;
· assess their contribution to the competitiveness of European industry and service providers;
· study the conditions leading to sustainable social and economic growth patterns.
The project will publish and distribute approximately 60-65 Issue Reports, 40 Executive Briefings and 30-40 presentations for workshops, plus each year a Main Report to be distributed in 5000 copies to the project main target of policy makers, industry managers and research experts, who are interested in understanding the overall impacts and implications at macro level of main social, economic and technical trends.
