Technical Report
The eGovernment Benchmarking has become, over the years, not just a measurement framework but one of the main policy tools in digital government. As such, it needs continuous updating to stay relevant in a fast-changing context while keeping year-by-year comparability. In particular, indicators to measure usability were added over the last years bu...
Chapter
Funding affects how science is carried out. Over the last 50 years, the core of science funding has become competitive, project based and increasingly oriented towards societal challenges. Recently, alternative, more open and flexible funding mechanisms have emerged, such as crowdfunding, philanthropy and bottom-up mechanisms. This chapter analyses...

Archived project
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.
