The European Commission has launched a study to highlight areas where further work will be necessary in the short term to fill DSM gaps and to identify future Commission actions that would bring the highest impact in economic and social terms. The study will feed into the analysis of the economic, technological and social dimensions of disrupting digital developments, and the identification of strategies to manage this transformation and maximise its benefits for Europe.

The European Commission has launched a study to analyse the economic, technological and social dimensions of disrupting digital developments, and the identify strategies to manage this transformation and maximise its benefits for Europe.

The objectives of the study are:

  1. To inform the ongoing efforts under the current Commission mandate (as described in "context" above) by highlighting areas where further work will be necessary in the short term to fill DSM gaps;
  2. To identify future Commission actions (after 2019) that would bring the highest impact (in economic and social terms) over a relatively short period of time and underpin them with solid evidence, providing a basis for the respective impact assessments.

The focus of the study will be on potentially disruptive economic, technological and social impacts. By disruption we mean significant impact on economic and social structures, innovation, competitiveness of EU industry, labour markets and society at large brought about by digital technologies.

The study will identify areas and technologies where action will be most needed and attempt to underpin them with evidence, for which the first step is to identify the most disruptive digital trends over the coming 5-10 years and their potential impacts on EU society and economy. Priority will be given to areas where EU actions can have the greatest impact and where DSM gaps are the biggest.

The total price quoted cannot exceed EUR 500 000  (five hundred thousand)

Deadline for tenders is 03/04/2018.
