José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, participated in the "Simply innovation: EU Government and Innovation" conference organised by Ernst & Young. In his speech he underlined that boosting innovation was a strategic priority of the EC. That was why the Commission created the Innovation Union "flagship initiative" which aimed at creating the conditions for a more innovative and thus more competitive and prosperous Europe.
The President also highlighted the importance of completing the Single Market in digital goods and services: 60% of the actions proposed in the EU's Digital Agenda would be completed at the end of 2012. Key forthcoming proposals would address cloud computing, roaming and Internet security.
