15 recommendations



Strengthen focus on those Grand Challenges where the EU can create or maintain a leadership position while boosting sustainab
le
economic growth. Greater
prioritisation is recommended with the aim to further increase industrial and societal relevance.



• Encourage the transformation of research into innovation by

increasing industrial relevance of EU research programmes and strengthening the focus on all stages of
the innovation chain

(research, development, demonstration and deployment).



• Concentrate resources around fewer co
-
ordinated efforts.



• Take a holistic approach that brings together in a coherent manner all the Commission Directorates
-
General concerned.



• Mobilise more resources behind common priorities by increasing the size of individual programmes and improving their focus.




• Reinforce the complementarity of instruments in the EU R&D and innovation landscape, building on the potential offered by t
he
European Research Council (ERC), the
Joint Technology Initiatives (JTIs) and the European Institute for Innovation and Technology (EIT).



• Streamline application and approval processes by reducing the overall administrative burden. This would speed up time
-
to
-
contr
act and encourage greater participation
of Small and Medium
-
Sized Enterprises (SMEs).



• Take a more trust
-
based approach that is less risk
-
averse.



• Review Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) provisions governing the knowledge sharing and transfer in collaborative research
.



• Consistently upgrade the quality of education in Europe and boost the understanding of the role of entrepreneurship, innova
tio
n and technological progress within a
knowledge economy.



• Strengthen the links between education, research and innovation (the knowledge triangle).



• Re
-
design Europe
-
wide immigration rules to attract and retain the best talent in Europe



• Web
-
enabled developer communities can make research results available as a basis for further development into a large number o
f different applications.



• Co
-
location of company research and university research in a single physical location is one way that can lead to the creation

of centres of innovation excellence.



• Public procurement can be a strategic innovation driver. As first customers and early adopters, public sector entities can
sup
port the development of pre
-
commercial
prototypes, test them in a live environment and contribute to the perfection and market uptake of their commercial applicatio
ns.
