Eco-Innovation Policies for Internationalisation
Research suggests that innovative companies are more likely to export and that exporting innovators are more productive and show better economic performance than non-exporters. This is particularly true for industries with high innovation intensity in technologically advanced countries. Since domestic markets tend to be too small and niche, it also indicates that eco-innovative companies need to internationalise their economic activities to reap the rewards of their innovation efforts.
To accelerate eco-innovation policies and to implement concrete policy measures on the internationalisation of eco-innovative products and services, the ECOPOL project makes recommendations for the deployment of eco-innovative policies and puts a set of pilot actions in motion.
The ECOPOL consortium welcomes dialogue, contributions and feedback from interested stakeholders.
