Event :: Regional Innovation through the Future Internet Public Private Partnership
10 - 13 October 2011, Brussels, Belgium
Europe needs strong measures to boost its economic growth through productivity and innovation for job creation in the coming years. It is widely recognized that the autonomous activities of single organizations cannot produce those radical, cross-disciplinary and architectural innovations that sufficiently address the need for public sector transformation in Europe. The use of advanced technologies and the promotion of innovation has become a cornerstone of European policy making. Next to an obvious R&D focus, EU innovation policy also incorporates a deployment and piloting perspective. This is embodied in the the Future Internet PPP (FI-PPP). This non-technical workshop presents and debates the value of the FI-PPP for regional innovation, showcasing examples and exploring opportunities for involvement of new regions and cities.
