Abstract: The goal of this work is to model the impact of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) on the Innovation performance for the European Union (EU) countries. In order to measure the overall innovation performance of each country we have used the Summary Innovation Index (SII), a composite indicator created on the initiative of the European Commission and computed yearly since 2001. The ICT performance was measured, at national level, using another composite indicator - the Networked Readiness Index (NRI) - assessed yearly since 2002 by the World Economic Forum, in collaboration with INSEAD. We have investigated two approaches: (1) a unifactorial linear regression between the two composite indexes: SII and NRI; (2) a unifactorial linear regression between SII and each of the four subindexes of NRI (Environment, Readiness, Usage, and Impact).
