FIVE YEAR ASSESSMENT REPORT RELATED TO THE SPECIFIC PROGRAMME: INNOVATION AND INNOVATION-SME, 1995-1999

Funded under: FP5-INNOVATION-SME

Abstract

This report concerns the external evaluation of the activities carried out within the INNOVATION Programme, as well of those carried out within the INNOVATION-SME Programme.

The new INNOVATION-SME Programme within the current Framework Programme 5 (FP5) has taken advantage of the experience acquired by its predecessor. Hence, it has clarified its objectives and focused on specific areas of activities. However, its limited resources (its budget of 363 Meuros has not marked a substantial increase on its predecessor�s) in comparison with

the high number of its activities as well as its limited authority upon the thematic programmes, undermines its effort and prevents it from effectively coordinating the Commission�s innovation activities.
