Final Conference of the ESSLimit project:
"ICT and Innovation: Accessing and linking Microdata for Firm-level Economic Analysis"
Seville, 9-10 October 2012
About the Conference:
During this final conference, the analytical results on firm ICT behavior as well as microdata linking and access will be presented and discussed by project members and invited experts.
The ESSLimit project aims at expanding the amount of information available on firm ICT behavior and impacts by linking different sets of enterprise data. This means that the business registers, production surveys, e-commerce surveys, innovation surveys, education registers and trade statistics for 15 European countries have been employed.
Besides providing results from analytical work on the relation between ICT and either innovations, firm performance, skills, human capital or exports, the project will also release a micro-aggregated research database. Furthermore, steps towards suggestions on how sampling strategies could be improved in order to facilitate microdata linking as well as the design of a protocol for how the final research database could be accessed, will be presented.
