These European countries with high ICT adoption, besides R&D investments, offer an untapped opportunity for Indian companies as a potential entry point to Europe. They are amongst the strongest European performers in the area of innovations, adopting new technologies and R&D. The high degree of collaborations between universities and the private sector in research in these countries is exemplary.
