A recent IMP³rove survey shows, that more than 70% of SMEs indicate that they have obtained measurable results by public innovation support programmes. Nonetheless, only 11% of SMEs mentioned, that they would not have been able to achieve these results without the support programme(s) they benefitted from!

How can the effectiveness of innovation policies be increased? Eva Diedrichs, Managing Director of IMP³rove Academy, discusses this question in an article for the Blog of the International Network for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (INSME): https://insme.wordpress.com/2016/09/08/imp%C2%B3rove-insights-for-innovation-policies/

A recent survey by IMP³rove Academy shows that an acceleration of innovation is taking place. In between 2013 and 2016, some industries show not only a shorter time-to-market, but also shorter life-cycle compared to the time frame between 2007 and 2012. What observations have you made in your industries?

This insight is derived from the IMP³rove database, originating from the IMP³rove Assessment (http://ht.ly/mcQq303Jeve) of firms´ innovation management capabilities and performances.
