Innovation at the heart of NextGenerationEU
“The NextGenerationEU is more than a recovery plan. It is a once in a lifetime chance to emerge stronger from the pandemic, transform European economies, create opportunities and jobs. We can make this happen. We have the vision, we have the plan, and we have agreed to invest 750 billion euro together. It is now time to get to work, to make Europe greener, more digital and more resilient.” (Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission).
Next generation innovations and technologies are the major drivers behind the NextGenerationEU. It is clear that the EU finds itself in a pivotal moment. Now is the time to get to work, to make Europe greener, more digital and more resilient. Wherever they are in Europe, all innovators and entrepreneurs must be empowered to realize their full potential, for they are the active force powering the wave of the green industrial revolution. The NextGenerationEU fund needs to support ambitious innovation projects in various industrial ecosystems, in healthcare, for a sustainable food provision, the generation of green energy and clean mobility. The projects being funded are needed to secure a sustainable future for the planet and people.
