ICT Industry Analysis
Starting date: September 2010
Duration: 28 months
Objective: The European ICT Poles of Excellence (EIPE) Project is to set the general conceptual and methodological conditions for defining, identifying, analysing and monitoring the existence and progress of current and future EIPE, as to develop a clear capacity in distinguishing those among the many European ICT clusters, benchmarking them with non-European poles, observing their dynamics and offer a thorough analysis of their characteristics.
In line with the Digital Agenda, the Commission's Communication entitled "A Strategy for ICT R&D and Innovation in Europe: Raising the Game" proposes a strategy to establish Europe's industrial and technology leadership in ICT, to make Europe more attractive for ICT investments and skills, and to ensure that its economy and society benefit fully from ICT developments. Building on Europe's assets, in particular the many ICT industrial clusters of Europe, the strategy seeks to step up the effort in ICT research and innovation and to maximise 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. In particular, the Communication anticipates a landscape where by 2020, Europe has nurtured an additional five ICT poles of world-class excellence.
