The Commission has published two reports on the European Innovation Monitoring System (EIMS), an initiative launched under the former SPRINT programme (1990-1994).

The first report, "Technology demonstration and application centres in Europe", examines the role that demonstration activities and, in particular, technology demonstration and application centres (TDACs) play in the process of technology transfer to SMEs. The report investigates TDACs in the EU in order to provide an understanding of the profile and function of these organizations and their demonstration activities and to analyse the results and their implications for policy.

The second report, "Technology brokers in Europe", is an assessment of the development of technology brokerage services and their effective use by companies. It focuses particularly on private brokers, in order to provide a clearer picture of their contribution to the technology transfer process, especially when it involves SMEs.
