From 7 – 11 December 2020, the Knowledge for Innovation Forum will take the pulse of Europe’s innovation ecosystem as policy makers, scientists, researchers, entrepreneurs, investors and startups will engage in the 12th edition of the European Innovation Summit
For over a decade, K4l has stressed the importance of innovation to solve major problems.
Now more than ever, we not only need a robust innovation policy, but a set of policies that rely on innovation in all domains. The Summit in December entitled “Towards a European Innovation Area” will discuss how research and innovation stakeholders will support the green and digital transition in joining forces from across Europe.
The programme of the 12 EIS is covering a broad range of topics that relate to major recently launched policy initiatives and the imminent launch of Horizon Europe:
In addition to Plenary sessions, there will be panel discussions organised by European Partnerships, and more specific topics will be addressed on the initiative of K4I members and summit partners.
We are happy to announce that Ms Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, confirmed her participation for the Opening Ceremony on 7 December, 18:00.
In a letter to K4I, Commission President Ursula von der Leyen wrote “The European Commission is eager to work with the Knowledge4Innovation Forum on strategic areas, where research and innovation acts as a powerful catalyst of Europe’s recovery.
