K4I advocates for:

  • making topics related to innovation and knowledge the top priority on the EU’s policy agenda
  • promoting innovation as the key tool for fostering sustainable economic growth, generating employment and further improving our current living standards.
  • bridging the gap between high level EU policies and practitioners´ needs and expectations.
  • improving the dialogue and cooperation between the different innovation stakeholder groups and across sectors
  • developing a new innovation model in which people are at the heart of innovation
  • ensuring stronger integration and more synergies along the innovation value chain
  • adopting a sound risk approach based on qualitative science
  • reducing the time consuming bureaucracy that stifles innovation (time = money)
  • bringing ideas to the market through patent protection, standardization, public procurement and smart regulation
