The Innovation Ouput Indicator measures the extent to which ideas from innovative sectors are able to reach the market, providing better jobs and making Europe more competitive. It has been presented by the European Commission in a Communication and a Staff Working Document adopted on 13 September 2013.
The proposed indicator is based on four components chosen for their policy relevance.
