  • Tarmo Kalvet

    (PRAXIS Center for Policy Studies)


This report forms part of the larger study initiated by IPTS on the socio-economic impact of ICTs in the acceding and candidate countries. It aims to describe the ICT manufacturing and software industry in Estonia and also throw light on how this industry will be affected by EU enlargement and how far it will contribute to the achievement of the Lisbon objectives. As well as providing an up-to-date overview of the current situation, including information on the largest ICT manufacturing and software companies, the report also debates possible future scenarios for the Estonian ICT manufacturing and software industry with a closer look at the challenges for the Estonian ICT sector innovation system.
