Report on "Orientations for EU ICT R&D and Innovation beyond 2013" has been published

The Information Society Technology Advisory Group (ISTAG) has published a report reaffirming the importance of pursuing and strengthening EU investment in ICT research and innovation.

According to the document, ICT has become a key transformative force in social innovation processes enabling and facilitating socio-economic and human development. ICT infrastructure is also a critical resource in today's globalised economy whose reliable and dependable operation is absolutely essential. ISTAG also considers essential to develop a more comprehensive view of the whole value chain of ICT and ICT-enabled services, bridging the gap between pre-competitive research, product development and service deployment.

The document contains 10 key recommendations and it is open to comments and feed backs until the 30 September 2011.
