  • The Commission will propose a new European Innovation Plan for spring 2010. In order to prepare such a plan, we are currently assessing the achievements of current Community innovation policies. Based on this assessment, we are identifying possible policy orientations for the medium and long-term, to be developed in the forthcoming European Innovation Plan. These orientations have to be placed in the context of the current overall EU innovation performance, the economic crisis and the changing nature of innovation.
