In March 2000, the European Union agreed on a political vision aimed at making the EU the most dynamic and competitive knowledge-based economy in the world by 2010.

The revitalised strategy relates strongly to Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), specifically in the i2010 vision â radically modernising and deploying the EU policy instruments to encourage the development of the digital economy â and in the upcoming Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) for research and technological development (2007-2013).
