Our research has shown there are five major foci which hinder the development of innovative environments within the Eurozone: Research & Development and Firm Practices fail to carry innovative thought through to the market and firms fail to utilize knowledge sources to close major gaps among Eurozone regions. Policy fails to support innovative startup firms, instead favoring large established firms. Education fails to incubate innovative thought. Cultural and Political Aversion to Risk does not foster an innovative and entrepreneurial environment. Financial Practices are not unilateral and remain independently structured, nation by nation, but are centrally supported.
