This report draws on recent outputs of the European Trend Chart on Innovation to assess EU Member States progress towards implementing the practical steps set out in the September 2000 Communication 'Innovation in a knowledge-driven economy'.

The Trend Chart is the mechanism through which the Commission supports open coordination in the area of innovation policy. It consists of the Innovation Scoreboard, a database of innovation policy measures, and a series of policy benchmarking workshops informed by detailed country and thematic reports. It aims to provide policy-makers and managers with information and statistics on innovation policies, performances and trends, and supports benchmarking and exchange of "good practices" in the area of innovation policy.

The report is published by the Innovation Directorate of DG Enterprise as Innovation Papers no. 29.

The Trend Chart website provides access to all Trend Chart publications:
