This initiative comprising 101 specific actions (78 to be carried out by the Commission and 23 by Member States) which together aim at boosting investment in, and the use of, digital technologies.

Overall, the table, which assesses the first year of implementation of Agenda, indicates that 11 actions were completed, 6 actions due in 2010 are delayed and the remaining actions are on track. On 13 goals considered essential performances, the following results were obtained:

  • Good progress on regular Internet use, online shopping, eGovernment (public administration on-line) and low energy;

  • Mixed progress in broadband availability and take up;

  • Insufficient progress in cross-border eCommerce, online presence of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), roaming prices and public research financing.
