  1. The issue of modernisation of the production process needs on one side be based on new technologies and use of data sources, using generic tools etc. On the other side it needs to be facilitated by adequate resources in the NSI's and National statistical systems: thes eresources contain the characteristics (skills, experiences, training) of the staff,  cooperation methods (between public organisations but more innovative als public private partnerships) and the well developed legal infrastructure for such cooperation models. For me these themes are the themes this TF should be focussed on.

  2. Istat topics:


    •  Improve the sharing model currently used by NISs (free licence, “software as a service)
    • Increase collaborative software development initiatives (How to negotiate written agreements? How select the software licence? How partners con contribute/finance initiatives? How involve third parties? How to finance the coordination of communities).

    • Development of Methodologies and Methods in Assessing the Impact of modernization projects
    • Statistical capability
