ABSTRACT
The article reports on the readiness of Gunther Verheugen, vice president of the European Commission, to host a press conference, with an unnamed European chief executive officer, to outline how the European Commission would like the member states to help SPIE in this area. Verheugen says that the European Union needs more firms that can innovate, either through new products or novel ways of making products or through providing services, if Europe is to maintain its competitive edge.
