European Innovation Scoreboard 2001. - Annex: Country Profile for Ireland

Funded under: FP5-INNOVATION-SME


The European Innovation Scoreboard responds to an explicit request of the Lisbon European Council. At Lisbon, the Union set itself the combined goal of strengthening social cohesion DQG becoming the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world within the next decade. Establishing a European area of research and innovation (ERA) was agreed to be one of the keys to better combine the efforts of the Union and the Member States. The two Communications on the ERA and Innovation in a knowledge-driven economy as well as the Commission proposal for the Next Framework Programme for Community R&D marked important steps in this direction. A preliminary European Innovation Scoreboard was published in September 2000.

The Country Profile Annex for Ireland analyses achievements and trends within the field of innovation, and describes innovation policy context as well as new policy schemes in this Member State.
