In order to reinforce understanding of innovation in the ICT sector and of ICT-enabled innovation in the rest of the economy, JRC and DG CONNECT launched in 2013 the 3-year research project on European Innovation Policies for the Digital Shift (EURIPIDIS). The purpose of the EURIPIDIS project was to provide evidence-based support to the policies, instruments and measurement needs of DG CONNECT for enhancing ICT innovation in Europe, as part of the Digital Agenda for Europe and of the ICT priority of Horizon 2020, paying particular attention to the improvement of the transfer of best research ideas to the market. The main objectives of the EURIPIDIS project were to:
- Better understand how ICT innovation works, both at the level of actors such as firms, and at the level of the ICT "innovation system" in the EU
- Assess the EU's current ICT innovation performance, by attempting to measure ICT innovation in Europe and measuring the impact of existing policies and instruments (such as FP7 and Horizon 2020).
- Explore and suggest how policy makers could make ICT innovation in the EU work better.
This collection includes the data produced in the framework of the EURIPIDIS project, and more precisely the Entrepreneurship and Scale-up Indices (ESIS) used to assess framework conditions for the creation and growth of firms in the European Member States and the underlying sub-indicators behind both indices.
