|Research on the new
communication technologies adoption by Catalan municipalities
Interviews were realized from the ACM (Associaciˇ Catalana de Municipis
i Comarques) during April and May 2000
The rapport contains a description of
the current situation in issues such as Internet usage, local
network usage, open administration formulas and others.
The main finding is that the
introduction of new communication means depends on the size of the
city. The larger, the better. Nevertheless, municipalities were the
major operates e-mail by him/herself tend to be more advanced in the
process of new communication technologies adoption.
The rapport includes also a
discussion on conceptual framework which states that the key factor
for a quick new technology adoption is cultural in nature. As a
consequence, it is postulated that a vast and deep process of
institutional renewal is required.
