The "Sectoral e-Business Watch" studied the impact of ICT and e-business on enterprises, industries and the economy in general. It highlighted barriers for a wider or faster uptake of ICT and identified public policy challenges arising from these developments. In this way, e-Business Watch supported the work of the European Commission's Enterprise and Industry Directorate General in the field of ICT (policy context). The overarching themes of the most recent studies were ICT and energy, ICT skills as well as ICT policy.
