Speech from President Barroso on Europe's Innovation Policy

Last week president Barroso gave a remarkable, forward looking speech to Parliament at the European Innovation Summit. He characterises how the knowledge society needs to be a driver of innovation and outlines the cornerstones of the future European innovation policy. This includes, amongst other things, the aspects of open innovation, of standardisation as a facilitator of innovation, and of the need for new, innovative models for IPR handling.

For more information see the Commission website on the Innovation Summit called Knowledge4Innovation where you can also view and download further information.
