Interactive content and convergence: implications for the Information Society

September 14, 2005

Brussels, 13 Sep 2005

The Commission's Information Society DG has published a call for tenders relating to a study on 'Interactive content and convergence: implications for the Information Society'.

The i2010 initiative identifies convergence as a main factor for change. The convergence of infrastructures, applications and devices will provide better and more compelling digital tools. The main objective of the first i2010 pillar, 'A single European Information Space' concerns the prospect of strengthening the single market, and exploiting the industrial opportunities offered by convergence.

The objective of the present study is therefore to identify and assess the impact of the potential economic, technical and legal roadblocks that may hinder the development of the interactive content market over the next five years, and to recommend the appropriate steps to overcome these obstacles.
