Summary:
The main problem does not seem to be Europeans not being creative enough but administrative hurdles, which still seem to be high. For instance, there is still an ongoing debate about the Community Patent, with member states squabbling about the language issue. Could the year of Innovation and Creativity change something about that? By kicking off serious policy debates on the issues of creativity and innovation, we hope to trigger policy reflections in all relevant areas, including issues relating to factors that stifle and hold back Europe's creative potential, such as excessive bureaucracy and red tape.
