|Abstract:||The Lisbon Strategy, launched in 2000, gives major importance to innovation in order to achieve the strategic goal the European Union set: being the most competitive knowledge society by 2010. In addition, the Lisbon agenda set up the Open Method of Coordination (OMC) as a policy tool to promote exchange of best practices and policy learning among Member States. The OMC relies heavily on the creation and use of indicators and benchmarks. This paper presents a short overview of the European policy approach towards innovation from 2000. Special emphasis is placed upon the measurements of innovation and on the innovation performance of the EU vis-à-vis its main competitors based on the innovation indicators created within the framework of the Lisbon strategy.|
