ICT infrastructures and ICT policies for innovation

Successful development and application of information and communication technologies (ICTs) can boost innovation productivity and output. At firm level ICTs feed into many types of innovation processes and create efficiency gains that free up scarce resources for use elsewhere. Existing empirical studies, including ongoing OECD work, point to a positive link between increased adoption and use of ICTs and economic performance at the firm and macroeconomic level (OECD, 2012).
