76 views

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, participated in the 2nd European Innovation Convention organised by the EC. Mark Rutte, Dutch Prime Minister, was also present. The 1st edition of this Convention took place at the same location in December 2011.
In his speech, José Manuel Barroso highlighted that the Innovation Convention was the perfect embodiment of Innovation. It was ambitious, bigger and broader than the first edition. He added that it was also innovative itself in the way it was being run, with real live stories being told, and some exciting real examples of innovations on show.
The award ceremony of the EU Prize for Women Innovators was held on the same day during the opening ceremony. It rewarded people who dare thinking differently and pursuing their ideas.
