The aim of the forum was to create an opportunity for researchers and policy makers to review and share their international experience of supporting innovative enterprises. As well as a plenary session, keynote speech and political round table discussion, the forum included parallel sessions on 'Change as business opportunity', 'Academia as business generator' and 'Cities as business incubators'.

The forum was organised by the Innovation Directorate of the European Commission's Directorate General for Enterprise. It is published as Innovation Papers no 25, as part of the 'Innovation and participation of SMEs' programme within the Fifth Framework Programme for RTD.

The publication includes a 6-minute video on a CD-ROM inserted inside the back cover.
