Expert workshop on innovation in services




On 9-10 March, DG Enterprise and Industry organised a workshop on innovation in services in cooperation with TEKES, the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation in Porvoo, Finland.

The main purpose of this workshop was to prepare for the European strategy in support of innovation in services, which was announced as part of the Commission's broad based innovation strategy launched in 2006, and which will contribute to the European plan for innovation the European Council expects the Commission to present in 2009.


"It is our impression that the market forces for innovation in services are rather strong and that services innovation in general does not require much political support to take off" said Mette Quinn of DG Enterprise and Industry. "However, services innovation needs a supportive 'eco-system' which does not exist everywhere in Europe. Services innovation seems to develop fastest in the best performing countries, which risks to deepen again the innovation gap in Europe". She announced that the future European strategy in support of innovation in services would specifically address this challenge, by looking into the role of Lead Markets, world class clusters and the specific needs of innovative service companies with high growth potential in order to create an overall positive climate for services innovation in Europe.

About 40 experts from the European Commission, national ministries and innovation agencies as well as from research institutes, consultancies and the private sector discussed the key elements to be taken into account in view of the forthcoming European strategy in support of services innovation.
