The project aimed at preparing the European innovation survey for the 2020 reference year (Community Innovation Survey – CIS 2020). This included the development of a questionnaire and an update of the survey methodology. A key issue was to incorporate the experience made with the new survey approach that has been implemented in 2018 in response to the third revision of the Oslo Manual. In addition, the project developed a concept for an 'innovation profiling' of firms.
