IST Project (IST-1999-14122)
"Socio-economic Trends Assessment for the Digital Revolution"
(STAR - http://www.databank.it/star) project has ready for you
a wealth of information.
The project has focused its
fundamental and original research on: "Understanding the
digital economy in Europe", in particular, the socio-economic
impacts and the socio-economic and technological aspects of the
digital economy development.
The first 19 issue reports
are now available for free downloading (http://www.databank.it/star/list_issue/issue.html).
They cover key issues such as growth and employment effects,
business models in e-commerce, e-government, new ways of working,
the balance of skills demand-supply, e-payment systems, disruptive
technologies, UMTS in Europe, the third generation mobile market,
and sustainable development.
From the evidence and analysis
of the interaction among key trends and the insights into their
relationships, and thanks to the collaboration of a group of
opinion leaders and industry experts, the project has also developed
hypotheses of future developments.
Last but not least, have a
look at the project Executive Briefings (http://www.databank.it/star/exb.html),
short position papers of recognised professional quality that
distil the key messages of the research results, providing input
and advice to specific audiences.
