The European Commission adopted the First Action Plan on Innovation in Europe in November 1996, following widespread consultations throughout 1996 on the Green Paper on Innovation. It contains a range of actions at both Community and Member State levels, to address three priorities:

- Fostering an innovation culture;
- Establishing a legal, regulatory and financial framework conducive to innovation;
- Gearing research more closely to innovation.

The present document details the progress made in the implementation of the Action Plan in the first year since its adoption, and outlines the priorities for 1998.
