The future of European organizations and corporations is interlinked with the ability of Europe's policymakers to create an environment for innovation to flourish.
Innovation is key to long-term growth. It has been a priority for European policymakers since the Lisbon strategy was launched in 2000, and a number of EU initiatives on the topic have been developed over the past decade. However, now is the time to take a fresh look at a dynamic and renewed policy to drive innovation.
Because profound social and economic shifts, such as the rising economic power of the emerging markets and an aging population in many developed markets, demand a new, more competitive approach.
In order to generate growth and prosperity, Europe needs a policy that is market driven and firmly supports an environment of innovation, and transforms these new ideas into new businesses and solutions.
This website presents our most recent thinking on the subject of innovation, from thought leadership to multimedia presentations and more.
We look forward to participating in this discussion with you now and in the future.
