On Thursday, 28 June 2016 in the European Parliament in Brussels, the EU Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, Carlos Moedas met the K4I Forum to inform on the latest developments of the EIC initiative. The Commission received more than 1000 contributions in response to the public consultation.

K4I Forum Chair Lambert van Nistelrooij underlined the importance of integrating all parts of Europe in the EIC initiative and Prof. Jerzy Buzek emphasised the need for innovators to recognise the added value of the EIC.

Mr. Gernot Klotz, K4I President, informed on the recent developments of INPACT and thanked the Commissioner for his continued support.
