Future Needs of Industry and Innovation Support

On the 22nd of February 2011, TAKE IT UP took part to the road-mapping workshop organised by RTC North in Brussels. The objective was to examine the efficiency and the effectiveness of EU Instruments relating to the future needs of industry and to contribute evidence to the post 2013 EU programme landscape for innovation. TAKE IT UP contributed with the engagement of the Expert Validation Platform.

Among priorities discussed, it is interesting to highlight how new forms of communication are commonly perceived as crucial to ensure a greater engagement of SMEs, and how business models represent the new frontier of innovation. It also emerged a strong need to:

  • align policy to 21st Century business practices;
  • reward innovation service providers based on the success of their clients;
  • use social networks to develop new products and services.
