Knowledge4Innovation is an open, independent, non-profit platform with a wide variety of stakeholders including regions, cities and universities, research organisations, trade organisations and think tanks as well as technology platforms small and large companies.

The goal of Knowledge4innovation and the Pact for Innovation is making innovation and research the top priority for Europe and to create the best possible framework conditions and support mechanism. A major focus is on optimizing the impact and exploitation of knowledge and ideas. There is a great wealth of publicly funded academic research waiting to be turned into products, services and solutions that create market value benefiting the economy and society.

Our activities are mainly taking place in the environment of the EU institutions with a strong foothold in the European Parliament. Within the activities of the K4I Forum in the European Parliament, supported by 40 MEPs, we have been organizing more than 500 debates and 11 successful European Innovation Summit events in the European Parliament in Brussels.

K4I Forum of the European Parliament

K4I events mainly take place within the framework of the K4I Forum in the European Parliament. The K4I Forum in the European Parliament brings together policy makers and stakeholders in debates about the future of innovation in Europe. After hundreds of debates, the Forum is well established in the European Parliament and recognized by the other EU institutions. The K4I MEP Policy Brief describes complex issues, particularly those arising from Commission proposals and those which the Members of the European Parliament, in their role as co-legislator, have to amend, report or vote on.
