The paper describes the “innovation market”, a specialised information and intermediary service operated on the Internet and launched by the German government in 1998. The innovation market is designed to help to establish contact between people with ideas and providers of capital (for start-up, seed or growth finance) and companies (interested in obtaining a licence or acquiring a patent). Entries in the innovation market are examined and assessed by 18 innovation partners. This preliminary examination is based on jointly agreed criteria and rules, so that only ideas of lasting value should be found in the innovation market. Organised quality assurance and demand-oriented processing make it easier for potential investors and companies to obtain a broad overview of the innovative projects on offer, and the associated intellectual property rights.
There is no doubt that the long-term competitiveness of industry depends to a large extent on its own attitude to innovation, and on how quickly it is able to develop and market new, improved products and processes. Shorter innovation cycles, narrowing markets and rising development costs are making it difficult for many enterprises to last the pace: they would be glad to import new technologies from elsewhere. However, small and medium-sized enterprises, in particular, often do not know how to gain access to recent results of research and development. The biggest obstacle, undoubtedly, is the lack of information and contacts that would enable them to trace the right person to talk to in the right research organisation. Also, it seems virtually impossible to locate the technology that best suits an enterprise, because there is no systematic screening or utilisation of the results supplied by the scientists. Not only that, but there are also many newly self-employed people and young enterprises that lack the necessary capital resources to put their innovative ideas into practice. In the past, the two sides – suppliers of know-how on the one hand and of capital on the other – had to find each other without assistance.
