stakeholders in the sectors with a comprehensive and holistic understanding of the sectoral innovation performance and challenges across the EU25 states. The fundamental question is to what extend and why innovation performance differs across sectors. The project investigates the sectoral innovation performance in specific European sectors. Therefore, it plays a great role in developing new indicators and innovation models at sectoral level. Moreover, the project goes beyond statistical analysis of cross-sector innovation performance and incorporates qualitative analysis. The project will also establish innovation panels composed of outstanding sectoral innovation specialists. They will serve as a platform for discussions on policy recommendations for each sector and steer and guide the entire project. Detailed results are available on the project homepage at
