Digital Agenda for Europe
A Europe 2020 Initiative

ICT Competitiveness Week 17-20th of September 2012

As the European Union is moving from the 7th Framework Research Programme and the ICT Policy Support Programme to the Horizon 2020 (2014-2020), time is ripe to assess the competitiveness of key ICT sectors. In addition, it is important to understand the cross-sector challenges and obstacles which the European industry is facing in the global digital economy. The "ICT Competitiveness Week", organised on September 17th-20th, 2012, by the European Commission Directorate-General `Communications Networks, Content and Technology' (DG CONNECT), brought together officials from across twelve Commission services and more than 300 invited experts.
