ICTNET Home Page

ICTNET is a project financed by European Commission (DG Information Society and Media) aimed at enhancing the coordination of the research in the economics of ICT in Europe.

The objective of the ICTNET is to bring together leading researchers on the economics of information and communication technologies (ICT) in order to discuss recent scientific contributions and outstanding policy challenges. 

 
 

 

Why Research coordination?

Improving the coordination of the research on the economics of ICT would bring two major benefits:

- Allow researchers from different ICT fields to feed the reflection of other research groups and orient their research agenda toward common questions.

- Try to answer policy questions at the stage of the definition of the research project to make results directly relevant to policy makers.

 
 

How to achieve research coordination?

A network of researchers and research institutions with an established research record in the economics of ICT.

A series of workshops on different areas of research to exploit synergies among different research groups.

A series of issues and assessment papers to address the main policy questions, take stock of the latest research results, identify research gaps and suggest potential synergies with other areas of research in the economics of ICT.

An electronic discussion group (EDG) to enable participants and researchers to interact, exchange ideas and post comments on papers, presentations and the project plan.

final conference to bring together researchers and policy makers allowing them to provide a comprehensive assessment of the economic impact of ICT and ICT-related policies.

A final report on the main research conclusions on each of the project pillars together with a research agenda for the years to come.

In the course of 2011 and 2012, eight ICTNET workshops took place in Parma, London and Mannheim on the topics of:

  • ICT-enabled innovation
  • ICT, productivity and growth
  • ICT, R&D and intangibles
  • ICT diffusion to the economy

 The Final ICTNET Conference took place on 25-26 June 2012 at the OECD Headquarters (Paris, France).
