The World Economic Forum's Networked Readiness Index (NRI), also referred to as Technology Readiness, measures the propensity for countries to exploit the opportunities offered by information and communications technology (ICT). It is published in collaboration with INSEAD, as part of their annual Global Information Technology Report (GITR). The report is regarded as the most authoritative and comprehensive assessment of how ICT impacts the competitiveness and well-being of nations.[1][2]

The index was originally developed by the Information Technology Group, which worked at Harvard University's Center for International Development until 2002. It seeks to better understand the impact of ICT on the competitiveness of nations and is a composite of three components:

  • the environment for ICT offered by a given country or community (market, political, regulatory, and infrastructure environment)l
  • the readiness of the country's key stakeholders (individuals, businesses, and governments) to use ICT
  • the usage of ICT among these stakeholders.
