EC logoAfter consulting Member States’ representatives and the Eurostat working group on Information Society Statistics, a new Monitoring Framework has been endorsed by the Digital Agenda High Level Group. It outlines digital policy developments and specifies the data requirements needed to monitor European polices, information and communication technologies, and their impact on society and the economy for the period 2016-2021.

It replaces the previous Conceptual Framework and defines future data sources and areas to be used.
