Innovation union - Research policy and organisation - EU Bookshop: "Innovation union
A pocket guide on a Europe 2020 initiative" is a well illustrated little guide with some important lessons and some solid statistical data on the benefits of innovation for crisis resolution and economic growth.

Summary
"Europe’s future is connected to its power to innovate. The Innovation Union, an action-packed initiative for an innovation-friendly Europe, is the solution.
