Overview Edit

This Communication proposes a strategy to establish Europe's industrial and technology leadership in information and communication technologies (ICT), to make Europe more attractive for ICT investments and skills, and to ensure that its economy and society benefit fully from ICT developments.

The strategy seeks to step up the effort in ICT research and innovation (R&D&I) and to maximize its impact in today's economic context. It forms part of the preparations for a European plan for innovation and research, encompassing the main technologies of the future including ICT, as called for by the European Council.
