Participation of José Manuel Barroso, Antonio Tajani and Máire Geoghegan-Quinn in the Innovation Convention 2011

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Industry and Entrepreneurship, and Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, Member of the EC in charge of Research, Innovation and Science, participated in the 1st European Innovation Convention organized by the EC.
Máire Geoghegan-Quinn attended with Robert-Jan Smits, Director-General of the DG "Research and Innovation" of the EC, the opening of an exhibition which celebrated the 1st anniversary of Innovation Union by showcasing the best of innovation in Europe. She then participated in the signing ceremony of the Risk-Sharing Finance Facility (RSFF) agreement together with Philippe Maystadt, President of the European Investment Bank (EIB).
In his speech entitled "The Innovation Union one year on" José Manuel Barroso presented his views on the key role of innovation in contributing to growth, jobs and well-being, saying that Innovation was the European blueprint to get the economy back on track over the course of the decade. He called for a smart fiscal consolidation and highlighted that cutting spending in key areas such as innovation, education, research and development would be exactly the wrong cut to do. The President also announced the appointment of a Chief scientific adviser, a new position created in the EC.
The award ceremony of the EU Prize for Women Innovators was held on the same day. It rewarded people who dare thinking differently and pursuing their ideas.
