To be held in Brussels on 22-23 June 1992, "Innovation In The Nineties" is an international conference on policies and priorities for industrial innovation and technology transfer (ITT) in Europe to the end of the decade. Sponsored and organized by the Directorate-General for Telecommunications, Information Industries and Innovation (DG XIII), of the Commission of the European Communities (in particular in the context of the SPRINT programme), "Innovation In The Nineties" aims to review the Community's performance in the ITT field and to assess challenges facing established policy for innovation at both Community and national levels. The adequacy of existing policies and supports will be examined, as will the need for new measures to meet the changed conditions in Europe during the last decade of the century. Particular attention will be given to conditions likely to affect innovative performance in a frontier-free Community; a Community faced with the prospect of new entrants, as well as the emerging potential of Eastern and Central Europe. Factors affecting company performance and management of innovation will be a special focus, and attention will be given to the problems and needs of SMEs. The Conference will be structured around three core themes:
- Technology diffusion and dissemination;
- Innovation infrastructure and support systems;
- Innovation policy issues.
Primarily focussed on policy and strategic issues, the Conference will be particularly relevant to policy makers, corporate planners and analysts, public administrators and those concerned with the formulation, implementation and management of innovation in firms and the public sector. Opening and closing plenary sessions will address the overall question of Europe's innovative performance and look to future requirements in the field of innovative policy.Further information is available from:
