An information brochure, entitled "INNOVATION", on the Community's RTD programme for the dissemination and exploitation of RTD results, technology transfer and innovation has been published by DG XIII of the European Commission. The INNOVATION programme, which represents the third activity of the Community's Fourth RTD Framework Programme, comprises three interdependent objectives: - Promotion of an environment favourable to innovation and the absorption of new technologies by enterprises; - Stimulation of a European open area for the diffusion of technologies and knowledge; - Supply of this area with appropriate technologies. The brochure explains each of these three objectives, and the actions necessary for their implementation, in detail. In addition, it provides information about the programme's budget, planned implementation schedule, and a list of contact addresses in the Commission for further information.
