Joint press conference by Olli Rehn, Vice-President of the EC, and Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, Member of the EC, on the Innovation Communication

Olli Rehn, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Economic and Monetary Affairs and the Euro, and Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, Member of the EC in charge of Research, Innovation and Science, gave a joint press conference on the Innovation Communication. The EC highlighted the importance of research and innovation (R&I) investments and reforms for economic recovery in the EU, and made proposals to help EU Member States maximise the impact of their budgets at a time when many countries still faced spending constraints.
Increasing R&I investment was a proven driver of growth, while improving the efficiency and quality of public R&I spending was also critical if Europe was to maintain or achieve a leading position in many fields of knowledge and key technologies. The Commission pledged support to Member States in pursuing R&I reforms best suited to their needs, including by providing policy support, world-class data and examples of best practice.
The Innovation Communication highlighted three key areas of reform: Improving the quality of strategy development and the policy-making process, bringing together both research and innovation activities, and underpinned by a stable multi-annual budget that strategically focuses resources; Improving the quality of R&I programmes, including through reductions of administrative burdens and more competitive allocating of funding; and Improving the quality of public institutions performing research and innovation, including through new partnerships with industry.
