Abstract

When adopting the Transfer of Technology Block Exemption Regulation (TTBE) in 1996, the Commission acknowledged that the economic development of the Community and its ability to draw abreast of its competitors in the rest of the world depended on the capacity of industry to devise new technologies and to disseminate them in the Community. Hence, the TTBE was designed to play a pivotal role in the development of innovation within the EU economy and in contributing to the competitiveness of businesses operating in the Community.

This report contains an assessment of the TTBE and is asking for comments thereon from third parties (industry, consumer associations, etc.).
