CORDIS, the EU's official information service on research, technological development and innovation, has launched a section on PRO INNO Europe, the EU's new comprehensive innovation policy measure. PRO INNO Europe is intended to become the focal point of innovation policy analysis and development throughout Europe. It will ultimately unite the current PAXIS and TrendChart initiatives (including the European Innovation Scoreboard) within a common framework. As a result, existing policy analysis and benchmarking activities will be integrated with new incentives for trans-national cooperation, innovation actions and policy-learning methods. A strong regional dimension will also be created by developing cooperation with the Innovating Regions in Europe (IRE) network. The new PRO INNO Europe service on CORDIS provides a comprehensive overview of the initiative. It gives concise and clear explanations of PRO INNO Europe's three main pillars (policy analysis, policy learning and policy development), and will lead the user to further information on the seven individual modules that make up the pillars. Until the initiative is fully operational in early 2007, CORDIS will gradually expand its information services to reflect the ongoing development of PRO INNO Europe. The first three modules of the initiative will be launched in mid-2006. The PRO INNO Europe service on CORDIS is part of the broader portal on Innovation Policy in Europe, which covers a number of different initiatives and policy measures on EU innovation policy.
