From the Paper:

"Researchers have observed that e-governments in their very nature provoke innovation in the field of ICT. It is expected that with increased investments in the ICT sector by the government, the corresponding gains will spur further growth in alternative areas that support the innovation of ICT. In effect the development of support infrastructure will be a consequence that calls for increased incentives from the central governments. Studies have therefore predicted that Europe is on a steady pace towards fully ICT-supported systems. However, there has been little research on the political impediments that stand on the path of ICT revolution in Europe by the year 2030."
