What emerges is a rather gloomy outlook for the future of Europes innovation, unless EU institutions and Member States will decide to streamline existing policies and build a layered model of innovation, in which governments act as investors in key enabling infrastructure such as ICT and education- as enablers of large technology markets where researchers and entrepreneurs can meet- and as purchasers of innovation when key societal challenges are at stake. The book contains proposals for the future innovation strategy of the EU and a specific analysis of areas such as the unitary patent, the transfer of technology (particularly as far as climate-related technologies and IP markets are concerned), standardization, and the digital agenda.
