INNO Policy TrendChart describes and analyses major innovation policy trends at national level across Europe in an independent way.
It aims to contribute to policy assessment and to identify examples of good practice, thus improving the basis for decision making in innovation policy.
A policy monitoring network tracks developments in research and innovation policy measures in 48 countries.
The information collected by this network is used to run and maintain the European Inventory of Research and Innovation Policy Measures, a common database of INNO Policy TrendChart and ERAWATCH , moreover it also feeds into analytical reports such as the ‘Innovation Policy Trends’, the ‘Innovation Policy Funding’ and other thematic reports.
By 2012, the INNO Policy TrendChart and ERAWATCH policy monitoring activities will be run as a single fully integrated operation.
