The Electronic Commerce Business Impacts Project (EBIP) was carried out by the OECD in 2001 and 2002 to develop a set of in-depth, internationally comparable case studies that provide new insights into the dynamics and impacts of electronic commerce and electronic business strategies and adoption. This study included 217 firm-level case studies covering 20 industry sectors across 11 participating countries. Research using a common approach across all sectors and countries was undertaken by teams in Canada, France, Italy, Korea, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. The international management and co-ordination of the project was supervised by Graham Vickery, OECD, in conjunction with the partner countries and TNO (the Netherlands). The studies benefited from guidance from the OECD Working Party on the Information Economy during the elaboration of this project.
Below, you will find documents outlining the common methodology, study plan and data reporting sheets for individual studies, as well as the sector reports from the participating countries.
