White Paper of ICT Prospective. 2020 Project
The White Paper of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is the result of a collective effort of the community of technologists, scientists and entrepreneurs from Argentina in this strategic area for the Ministry of Science, Technology and Productive Innovation, aimed at defining its future and the opportunities it presents for the country. The work, which focuses primarily on software and computer services, was conducted through a virtual forum organized by the Ministry since its creation, in late 2007. It has involved more than 200 people, relevant characters from industry, government and academy. As a result of the initial discussions of the Virtual Forum, in 2008, 19 working groups were organized to discuss the main aspects of the ICT problem. In particular, the groups tried to identify technologies and application and business areas that should be primarily promoted in Argentina in the coming years. Each group produced a document, which was discussed by the other participants in the forum. The book presented here is the result of the integration of this effort.
