This is why, in most major economies, ICT research gets the largest share of research investment, accounting for over 30% of the total research effort. This applies to both the public and the private research fields. However, this is not the case in Europe, where ICT research represents only 18% of the total research effort. Information and communication technology research 23 Today, Europe invests only a third of what the USA invests in ICT research and 30% less than Japan. This is undermining Europe’s capacity to compete in all sectors of the economy, to meet the demands of our societies and to innovate in all science fields.

However, this is not the case in Europe, where ICT research represents only 18% of the total research effort. Information and communication technology research 23 Today, Europe invests only a third of what the USA invests in ICT research and 30% less than Japan. This is undermining Europe’s capacity to compete in all sectors of the economy, to meet the demands of our societies and to innovate in all science fields. Europe should bridge this gap and we are certainly capable of doing it. Strong and well-coordinated research investments in ICTs in the 80s in particular have enabled Europe to become a world leader in many ICT sectors.

It is equally essential today to strengthen the effort at Community level. More than ever before, cooperation in ICT research is important in order to share costs and risks and to combine the key multidisciplinary skills that are needed to succeed. Increasing and pulling together the ICT research effort in Europe both in the Member States and at Community level will exert a significant leverage effect on private investments in R&D. We see today that those emerging economies with significant public investment in ICT research are those that attract the most private investment in this field.
