A longitudinal study of organizational adoption of Internet technology in European microstates pre- and post-COVID-19 While at Faber, I propose to work on a study of Internet technology access, use, and outcomes by organizations in the six European microstates – Andorra, Liechtenstein, Malta, Monaco, San Marino, and the Vatican City – using an organization’s decision to use a website (and associated technologies) as a proxy for its degree of digitization. By using websites, one can explore a wider range of organizations representing different sectors and size and can explore marketing outcomes using website traffic data sourced from Tranco, Cisco and Majestic, and where possible financial information sourced from commercial databases. This provides us with evidence regarding potential determinants of organizational digital divides amongst the smaller European nations over time and accordingly informs policy interventions. As both grey literature and emerging empirical research suggests an acceleration of digital adoption by organizations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I will examine Internet technology adoption longitudinally and thus measure the impact of COVID-19 in the acceleration of website technology adoption in these microstates.
