Barroso II seeks to streamline innovation policy

Abstract:
European Commissioner for Enterprise and Industry Günter Verheugen told European Year of Creativity and Innovation debate in Brussels that now is the right time to review the EU's innovation strategy, adding that he will publish a detailed analysis of policies in this area by the end of his term. He said progress on innovation has been "insufficient".

The commissioner said the results of the Lisbon Agenda have, "to put it mildly, been very mixed". "Despite all our action, clear short-comings remain and we need to turn this around."

He said the internal market remains incomplete, and innovative SMEs still struggle to access venture capital. Verheugen also pointed to the ongoing failure to introduce a community patent.

He revealed that he will bring forward a draft communication on "key enabling technologies" by the end of October. These will focus on nanotechnology, advanced materials, photonics, biotechnology, and micro- and nanoelectronics.
