SERVICEGAP

About SERVICEGAP

 

The SERVICEGAP project ran from 2010 - 2013, and has now finished.  The majority of papers and reports from the project are now available via the menus on the left of this page.

 

Background

In the past decade the performance of service industries has come to the forefront of research on Europe's comparative economic performance, especially as the benefits from the use of information and communications technology (ICT) have been concentrated in these industries. The SERVICEGAP project will consider the academic and policy concerns that arise from the increasing importance of the market service sector. It will consider developments in productivity and its drivers within market services, linkages between services and manufacturing industries, innovation in delivery and the increasing internationalisation of services. The overall objective of this research is to produce a comprehensive study on the impact of market services on aggregate economic growth in the EU and its comparative performance relative to competitor regions, especially the US.
