European Commission, eEurope 2002 Action Plan (2000) (full-text).

Overview Edit

The "eEurope 2002 Action Plan," agreed by the EU Member States in 2000, targeted three areas:

  1. cheaper, faster and secure Internet,
  2. investing in people and skills, and
  3. stimulating the use of the Internet.

Its achievements are summarized in a Final Report (eEurope 2002 Final Report) presented by the Commission in February 2003.

eEurope 2002 was successful in extending Internet connectivity and helped the Member States adopt the existing legal framework for electronic communications and important legislation for e-commerce. However, the effective use of the Internet was not developing as fast as connectivity. Therefore subsequent policy attention shifted to supporting effective use of ICT through an increased availability of high quality infrastructure, as well as availability of attractive services and applications and the encouragement of organizational change.
