This report collected the views of a range of innovation stakeholders such as start-ups, SMEs, business support organisations, universities and research organisations, incubators and accelerators, on how to strengthen the European innovation ecosystem and improve innovation cohesion in Europe. Overall, 239 participants active in all 27 EU Member States answered the survey during August and September 2021. The purpose of the survey was to collect views on the challenges Europe’s innovation ecosystem actors are facing, which opportunities they see ahead, and what their visions and ideas for future actions are. The report, as derived from the survey, should inform policy makers, at European and national level, on the existing challenges that stakeholders are facing within Europe’s innovation ecosystems and contribute towards expanding the innovation frontiers by mitigating the existing, identified barriers.
