Therefore the article proposes an analysis of innovation policy priorities and their implementation results on the ground of European and Lithuanian strategic documents in order to indicate the essential areas wherein is the requirement to strengthen the governmental actions in Lithuania. The paper suggests the following: a framework of key strategic priorities and initiatives in EU innovation policy field, a comparison of Lithuanian and EU innovation performance data, an estimation of Lithuanian innovativeness tendencies in respect of possibilities to reach the European targets and the review of current Lithuanian innovation development framework.
