PRO INNO Final announcement
PRO INNO Europe® - 6 years of developing better innovation policies
18th of August is the last day of PRO INNO Europe®. Our aim was to become the focal point for innovation policy analysis and policy cooperation in Europe. We wanted to learn from the best and contribute to the development of new and better innovation policies in Europe.
PRO INNO Europe® community was sharing experiences and knowledge via this website, direct communication and events. We were all meeting every year at the Annual Partnering Event. Our activities were structured around five pillars:
1. Benchmarking of innovation performance (INNO-Metrics)
2. Analysing major innovation trends (INNO-Policy Trendchart)
3. Pooling of world-wide knowledge and contacts with regard to innovation policy and business innovation and facilitating a dialogue between public authorities, industry and academia on innovation policy (INNO-GRIPS)
Thanks to commitment and contribution of particular projects, eight PIE® Newsletters were published. Project teams published many policy documents and reports aiming at accelerating debate on innovation within the EU. We also created repository of Best Practices to showcase the achievements of particular actions and projects.
PIE® unlocked the potential of innovation policy and innovation support actors and paved the way to further actions, such as the European Mobile and Mobility Industries Alliance and the European Creative Industries Alliance.
The project is coming to an end but efforts to help EU enterprises to innovate better are ongoing. We will be cooperating within the framework of new initiatives and build on lessons learned from PRO INNO Europe®.

Innovation is a key factor to determine productivity growth. Understanding the sources and patterns of innovative activity in the economy is fundamental to develop better policies. This is the main aim of INNO-Metrics.
INNO-Metrics is currently composed of two instruments, the European Innovation Scoreboard (EIS) and the Innobarometer.
The EIS attempts to benchmark, on a yearly basis, the innovation performance of Member States, drawing on statistics from a variety of sources, primarily the Community Innovation Survey.
The Innobarometer complements the results of the EIS by analysing specific aspects of innovation through a survey of 3,500 randomly selected companies in the EU. In 2006, the theme of the Innobarometer was the role of clusters in facilitating innovative activity. In 2007, the Innobarometer will explore the subject of non-research based innovative companies.
