This research area is concerned with the diffusion of ICT as well as the success of firms in the ICT sector and ICT-intensive industries. Economists in this area conduct surveys to investigate which ICT applications are used by firms, the goals pursued with ICT, as well as the associated obstacles firms perceive. In addition to identifying the ways in which specific technologies may be further developed, researchers examine how the successful use of ICT can promote growth in firms, specific sectors, and in entire national economies.
