EIA – Why Europe needs an Innovation Area

Why do we need a European Innovation Area?

Research and innovation are key to how we live, how we work, and how we protect the climate. Now more than ever, there is the need to have an innovation strategy at the European level to better connect among innovation ecosystems, create synergies to enhance scaling-up what is done at the local level, and connect talent, knowledge, and finance across Europe.

A European Innovation Area can contribute to encourage public support for innovation and increase the capacity of our companies, startups, SMEs to adopt new technologies and innovations. It could also help the economy recover from the Covid19 crisis, increase competitiveness, and translate European values into a coherent innovation strategy.

More information on the program and speakers can be found on the agenda of the event.
