Spain is at a crossroads and needs to change its production model. This change involves moving up the production value chain, which implies a commitment to innovation. This paper sets out specific proposals to encourage more innovation, including these ideas within another series of initiatives that have multiplied throughout 2010. The recession provides an opportunity to re-set the Spanish economy. This will not be achieved without breakthroughs in innovation as well in the field of economic policies.
