In this project, ZEW collects and analyses a set of indicators on innovation activities of the German enterprise sector. The project serves the annual review on Germany’s performance in research and innovation which is prepared by the Expert Committee on Research and Innovation (EFI). Innovation indicators are primarily taken from the Mannheim Innovation Panel and the Community Innovation Surveys (CIS) for other European countries. In addition to a set of core indicators on inputs and outputs of innovative activities of firms, the project also looks at some aspects of the organisation of innovation processes, including obstacles to innvation.
