Europe was the cradle of the manufacturing industry and it has traditionally led important industrial fields. The industrial sector still provides 4/5 of all exports and 80% of private R&D in the European Union are financed by this sector.

Innovation is the key to growth, competitiveness and thus social well-being in the 21st century. The capacity of a society to innovate will be crucial in an ever more knowledge-intensive economy.

An adequate understanding of innovation thus has to consider the technological as well as the social aspects of innovation processes. That is why also the social sciences and the humanities, for instance in relation to studies on societal implications, technology acceptance, and risk analysis, will play an important role in successfully implementing innovations.
