EIA Manifesto Handover to Commissioner Mariya Gabriel
Innovation is key in accelerating the green and digital economy of tomorrow. Now is the time to bolster Europe’s innovation landscape to foster this transition. In order to tap into the full potential of Europe’s knowledge and talent, there must be a cohesive network linking together all innovation actors. To achieve this, it is imperative to establish a robust framework for innovation policy in the EU. The time is now for a European Innovation Area that empowers all innovators and entrepreneurs across the continent to realise their full potential.
Making the European Innovation Area a reality will require the input of all relevant stakeholders, from both the public and private sectors. The Manifesto outlines 8 key focus areas for accelerating Europe’s transition toward a single European innovation ecosystem. Together with the K4I Forum Chair, MEP Maria da Graça Carvalho and other K4I Forum political members, EIT KICs, European Partnerships, universities and innovation support organisations, we are keen to work with Commissioner Mariya Gabriel to make the European Innovation Area a success story for the benefit of Europe, its citizens, and its enterprises.
