The First Innovation Convention
On 5-6 December, the first edition of the Innovation Convention was opened by President Barroso just one year after the adoption of the Innovation Union flagship initiative, the EU's roadmap to turn Europe into a more innovation-friendly and competitive continent. This major event has been an opportunity not only to engage in and contribute to the innovation debate with high-level policy-makers, top researchers and business leaders but also to gain inspiration from world-renowned speakers and to network and exchange experiences with your peers.
The exhibition has showcased exciting research and innovation results being developed under European funding programmes. Two projects funded under the Theme 3 food, Agriculture and Fisheries and Biotechnology, have been presented: FORBIOPLAST and SELFDOTT .
The first Innovation Convention was a huge success and we thank you for your participation! Let's meet next year for a second edition!
