Abstract

Consultation on the Green Paper involved an unprecedented debate on innovation not only in the fifteen countries of the European Union, but also in Norway and Iceland. It was analysed, discussed and commented upon by researchers, the heads of large concerns and SMEs, public authorities, trade unions, professional associations and the various Community institutions. Conferences were held in 17 countries involving nearly 5000 persons.

An initial non-exhaustive summary and analysis of the reports of proceedings of the conferences and the most representative (particularly of the main professional associations and trade unions, national and European federations, large concerns and financial institutions) and relevant contributions is given in Chapter 1. The contributions of the European institutions or the official contributions of the Member States are described in Chapters 2 and 3 of this annex respectively.
