Abstract

"Experience of European managers in innovative activities" was the subject of the latest Innobarometer survey carried out in September and October 2004 for the European Commission in the 25 Member States of the European Union under the Flash Eurobarometer opinion poll system.
In 2001, 2002 and 2003, its objective was to assess European companies' investments in innovation and the output achieved. In addition, this survey examined the driving forces for innovation, companies' needs in order to innovate, as well as the development of new managerial approaches to innovation. A further aim was to assess how the Single Market can be of further benefit to companies in the European Union. The approach in this latest wave differs in that it specifically focuses on companies which have recent (i.e. in the last two years) experience of innovative activities. The objective of this approach is to assess how firms innovate and how they support their innovative activities. A further aim of this research is to examine managers' views on national regulations as well as firms' experience of public support.
