UNU-MERIT consortium partner of European Service Innovation Centre

The European Commission has set up a European Service Innovation Centre (ESIC) to help EU regions harness the transformative power of service innovation.

UNU-MERIT is part of a consortium that will carry out a peer-review “stress test” of service innovation policies in six model regions.

This will identify strengths and weaknesses, while tracking the progress of innovation support systems, culminating in a “European Service Innovation Scoreboard”.

The ESIC also aims to raise awareness among policy-makers about the role of service innovation in boosting economic development and industrial transformation.
