WIN-response on EC's Green Paper on Research and Innovation
2011 – The Work-In-Network (WIN) produced a response on the EC’s Green Paper on important proposed changes in EU funding for ‘Research and Innovation’. The network responds to the question of how the EU with her funding can recognize non-technological innovation, eco-innovation and workplace innovation.
This document also refers – with much approval – to an advise on ‘Innovative workplaces as a source of productivity and quality of work’ by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC).
The WORK-IN-NET (WIN) was a Coordination Action (CA, 2005 – 2010) in the ERA-net and aimed to collect, analyze and disseminate information on national activities in the field of innovation. By improving the quality of work and making more use of the creativity of the employees, Europe can keep up with the demands of today’s economy. The information was shared with other Member States of the European Union where workplace innovation is not yet on the agenda. WORK-IN-NET wanted to reduce economic and social disparities between European countries.
The advice is given in the Annex.
