“Innovation is as essential to sustainable growth and jobs as water is to life. Economies that do not innovate will wither away. The European Commission is asking Member States to act on it in their Europe 2020 National Reform Programmes, by building on strengths and addressing weaknesses. The Innovation Union Competitiveness report provides them economic evidence and analysis to underpin EU and national policy making in support of Innovation Union. Public and private stakeholders will also get in a single compendium valuable insights to design winning innovation strategies within Europe and for the global market.”
