Better Framework for Innovation

Fuelling EU Policies with an Innovation Principle

Position Paper

This joint statement from BUSINESSEUROPE, the European Risk Forum and the European Round Table of Industrialists indicates how the Better Regulation agenda may be used to stimulate confidence to invest in innovation in Europe. In particular, it discusses what the Innovation Principle should look like in practice and the additional changes that are required to European governance and policy-making to make this possible.

Whenever EU institutions consider policy or regulatory proposals, impact on innovation should be fully assessed and addressed.
