EU project seeks to improve innovation performance of Russia and Ukraine
Innovation is seen by many as an important driver of economic growth. Recognising this, EU Member States have in recent years stepped up their efforts to implement policies aimed at raising their innovation performance. These policies are now being to bear fruit.
The same cannot be said for some countries outside the EU, where innovation policies are failing to have the desired impact on the economy. This is where the EU-funded BRUIT project comes in. Its aim is to research and develop innovation policy in Russia and Ukraine by applying the socio-economic research methodology and indicators of the TrendChart on Innovation.
The Chart, developed by the European Commission, is an initiative built on three blocks; the Survey of Innovation Policy to track national policies, the European Innovation Scoreboard to compare national innovation performances, and the Innovation Policy review as a policy learning support tool to help in the exchange of good practices.
