Increasing the business-led innovation performance of the European economy is crucial in order to compete in the global market. The Council recognises the need to implement the broad­based innovation strategy, including innovation in services, eco-innovation and non-technological innovation, and welcomes progress achieved thus far. It is necessary for the EU to find solutions for a patent litigation system and a Community patent. To this end, work will continue building on the progress report submitted to the Competitiveness Council on 22 November 2007. The Council also considers urgent the promotion of an EU-wide market for venture capital for our most innovative firms, together with taking measures to improve investment readiness and early-stage financing of SMEs.
