BISER – Benchmarking the Information Society: e-Europe Indicators for European Regions

Development of indicators for benchmarking the development of the information society in European regions

The BISER project defined, developed and piloted a set of statistical indicators for measuring and benchmarking the impact of the digital economy on Europe’s regions. Carried out in the context of the eEurope initiative, the project promoted attention on policies which allow for cohesion in economic and societal development in the information society. BISER worked in close co-operation with leading organisations engaged in the production of statistical data on issues relevant to the information society, especially national statistical institutes and supra-national organisations such as Eurostat and the OECD.
