Supercharging EU Productivity with Digital Technologies

October 27, 2014
| Presentations

While Europe steadily reduced the productivity gap with the U.S. after WWII, since the mid-1990s this gap has widened as EU productivity growth has stalled, leaving many European companies uncompetitive, incomes stagnant, and government finances in turmoil. If Europe is going to catch up it must follow the same path that drove U.S. productivity growth, in particular, more ubiquitous adoption of information and communication technology (ICT). ITIF hosted events with the Policy Network in London and the Lisbon Council in Brussels to assess the roots of the EU’s productivity and ICT adoption challenges, and to discuss a series of reforms designed to spur utilization and enhance growth.
