Abstract

Policy makers are promoting standardization activities because standardization can stimulate productivity and growth. To support these policies, a dedicated module of the community survey on ICT usage was designed to investigate the perception of Luxembourgish firms towards ICT standardization. Behaviours and intention of ICT standardization is investigated in two stages. A contingency analysis describes ICT standardization behaviours across industries and size classes. Second, a multivariate analysis identifies the features of firms interested in any area of ICT standardization. The econometric analysis shows that the typical firm that would like to develop ICT standards is active in the service industry, uses standards, is a government supplier, experiences moderate competition, and it is not a leader in its market. Interestingly, large and small firms are equally interested in ICT standardization. Specific policies aiming to provide resources to SMEs that would like but are not active in standardization are particularly advisable.
