26/01/2016 | © BUSINESSEUROPE

The EU is lagging behind major competitors in its ability to invest in research and turn these investments into marketable products and services. One of the key determinants of business success in today’s fast moving markets is the capacity to innovate, adapt and exploit new technologies and business models.

To build a political momentum around the need to make Europe a better place to innovate was the objective of the conference “A better framework for innovation”, which triggered the discussion with representatives of European institutions, companies and civil society on how to shape the EU policy landscape surrounding innovation.
