Encouraging European innovation

  • Share


To emerge into the dawn of global economic recovery … we need an approach that can unite citizens, businesses and government.

A more coordinated, dynamic and technology-neutral innovation policy is the only chance for Europe to achieve its long-term economic and social targets.

Innovation in Europe

We believe innovation by European businesses and organizations is increasingly a principal source of growth and competitiveness.

With the closing chapter of the financial crisis yet to be written, there is little doubt that generating sustained economic growth and prosperity will challenge the best and brightest of today’s generation of European leaders.

But this is not a task for policy-makers alone.

To emerge into the dawn of global economic recovery, and to safeguard European jobs, living standards and businesses, we need an approach that can unite citizens, businesses and government.

A policy that is better coordinated, and flexible enough to be able to adapt to the demands of the market, will create the environment for innovation to flourish, transforming new ideas into new businesses and new solutions.

Next Generation Innovation Policy

Together with the Centre for European Policy Studies, we studied industry experts that focused on EU innovation initiatives and identified changes that would lead to more responsive and dynamic innovation policy.

Our Next Generation Innovation Policy report was the result of the study.
