About the product

The on-going processes of economic, social and cultural transformation have been accelerated by the impact of information and communication technologies. The pace of adaptation of these new technologies and the utilization of their potential in accelerating economic development has varied from country to country. For this reason the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe created a system of monitoring the development of information and communication technologies and knowledge intensive-economic activities. This regional assessment report has been compiled by national experts to provide detailed information on the European region's potential, as well as to present a current picture of the approaches and solutions taking place towards developing a knowledge based society.
