  • Authors: Gáspár, Pál
  • EUR Number: 21572 EN
  • Publication date: 3/2005


Thirteen national monographs were written as part of the study "Factors and Impacts in the Information Society: A Prospective Analysis in the New Member States and the Candidate Countries". This final report consolidates the findings of the 13 country monographs with the research results of other international research programmes (SIBIS Report, OECD, World Bank, DG INFSO). It reviews the monographs, their prospective insights, their general conclusions and their policy implications. It offers comparative elements concerning factors and impacts related to the development of the Information Society. It also integrates the elements developed in each monograph, going beyond the simple aggregation of discrete results and looking at the New Member States and the Candidate Countries as a whole.
