The Green Paper on Innovation prompted a very important reaction and there was a wide-ranging debate, which extended beyond the borders of the European Economic Area. More than 40 000 copies were circulated. The Green Paper was studied by the various Community institutions, by the governments and by those directly concerned. In all the Member States, together with Norway and Iceland, conferences to discuss the Green Paper were organised at the Commission's initiative and with the support of the national authorities. They brought together more than 5 000 people: industrialists and representatives of research centres, financial institutions, government departments, innovation bodies, trade unions, universities, etc. This paper gives the summary and conclusions of the conference held in the UK on 1 May 1996.
