2014-2020 A New Perspective For Innovation In Europe

The 5th European Innovation Summit will provide an excellent opportunity for all stakeholders to discuss and debate with Members of the European Parliament, Commissioners and high-level EU-officials, the main challenges to Europe’s innovation performance and work towards an improved mutual understanding of goals and needs to the benefit of the EU and its citizens.

With reference to the implementation of Horizon 2020 and the Structural Funds, the summit will be a great opportunity for innovation stakeholders to debate and discover how they can participate and take advantage of the opportunities, these instruments will provide.
The 5th EIS will be also the culmination of the Wake up Europe initiative, which aims to put forward proposals to boost the Europe’s competitiveness.

Of course, as a major player in the European Innovation context, EUREKA will take part in this important debat too.
