This report portrays the outcomes of the workshop ‘Bridging Microeconomic Data Sources for the Analysis of ICT, Innovation and Performance’ organised by IPTS on the state of the art in international micro-founded analyses on Information Communication Technologies (ICTs), R&D, innovation, and economic performance.
Micro-level statistics allow us to elicit the internal variability of productive systems. For this reason, they can be extremely useful for understanding industry and macro dynamics, as well as for policy design and monitoring. Nonetheless, large-scale application of these statistics is still limited for different reasons, mostly related to the availability of information.
Against this background, the workshop aimed to provide a broad overview of completed and ongoing analyses at national, European and OECD levels, and also to share experiences and discuss proposals to address current issues and fully deploy the potential of microdata.
