Abstract: We report on an empirically derived model for innovation indicators that enables a better measure and promotion of innovation. The model has been derived through an internet-based Delphi assessment, involving up to 32 experts. The first two Delphi rounds (April 2004–March 2005) were held through the internet and the third round (May 2005) was organised as a workshop in a face-to-face meeting. As a result of the Delphi assessment, we could derive a model of the innovation system with very high consensus among the experts. This model will make it possible in a next step to define innovation indicators that will enable policymakers to analyse the innovation system and monitor its evolution. A comparison with the European Innovation Scoreboard indicators shows that more indicators than used nowadays will have to be defined to make the model operational.
