Abstract:Innovation is important for economic growth in Europe and the knowledge society. However in terms of innovation, Europe does not perform well. Europe suffers from an ‘innovation problem’ and ‘innovation gaps’. One possibility for improving Europe’s performance in the field of innovation is the creation of an Innovation Area. An Innovation Area will provide a platform for each member state to promote and support innovation. Such an Innovation Area must contain an coordination mechanism. This thesis will analyse the opportunity to use an OMC for an Innovation Area. The central question for this master thesis will be: Is the OMC a suitable coordination mode for an Innovation Area? The central question will be analysed in two ways. The first way focuses on the type of coordination. It compares the OMC with the three traditional coordination modes of hierarchy, market and network. Based on this description possible strengths and weaknesses of the OMC will be detected. The second way will analyses the applicability of the OMC. Three ideas about the applicability of the OMC will be discussed.
