Event Details

It is no secret that science, research and talented people are at the core of the solutions badly needed to solve major challenges. However, these drivers of innovation are far from being fully exploited in Europe.

There are many examples of successfully operating innovation actors and eco-systems at the local and regional level. However, the potential gains from connecting innovation actors from across Europe are not fully realised. A closer cooperation between the best would allow for better leverage in exploiting technology opportunities, through creating an enhanced and more efficient EU-wide innovation system.

Together we can have a real impact on EU policy making and help design programmes and policies reflecting the needs of innovation stakeholders and entrepreneurs.

Together with Members of the European Parliament, representatives of the European Commission and leading innovation actors from across Europe, we would like to discuss how we can move Europe’s innovation agenda forward and turn the great wealth of knowledge and ideas into solutions addressing major societal challenges. Solving the problems of citizens’ and society does not mean that there cannot be a profitable business case, in the contrary.
